Re: 15x7 rallys & tire sizes
Ok - I have read hundreds of posts and tried to do some thorough homework on this subject. This is specific to 15x7 rallys. Looks like the concenses is: 245-60 or 255-60 on the rear will fit under the fender and will NOT rub. 255 looks a little bit out of proportion to me but that's just one guy's opinion. As to the fronts; up to 225-60 does not rub on any car with stock height (decent springs). 235-60 does not rub on MOST cars but does on some. 245-60's rub but some say tolerable. To: you guys with actual experience with these set-ups - do you agree? Can you direct me to some pictures? I like to push my 68 in the corners so I'm thinking 225/60 up front and 245-60 in the rear. THANKS!
I was running 215/65/15 & 255/60/15. I'm sure 225 in front would've been fine, but I wouldn't have done 235. In the rear, some guys run em' 275 and claim no issues. Personally, I think 255 is perfect on 15's for the rear, and either 215, 225 or 235 for front (personal choice).
A lot of this depends on what you're looking for in the way of handling etc... If for handling, less bulge is better. I switched to 17"s a few months ago and have no regret, but this was also in conjunction with a larger plan; front & rear suspension changes.
Bottom line: Your choice above is perfectly sound!
