Re: Largest 15" tire size for stock wheels/height?
Thanks a lot for your reply. I'm more about performance, which one would fit into first gen without any modifications, 15x7 or 15x8? they also have different offset of 0mm, 25mm, 38mm, which one is the right one?
And is the 205 55 15 the biggest tire i can put on, if so do you have any recommendations for a specific tire brand?
Sorry, it's a lot of questions but thanks a lot for the answers.
205 55 15 is my choice because it's the widest I could find that has the correct diameter so the speedo doesn't loose it's calibration. I believe my Enkie's are 15x6 40
Tire Brand, pretty much a slave to to the few providers that still offer 205 55 15. Yok S Drives are no longer made, which "were" my preference. I believe Nitto and Dunlop still provide that size, Dunlop probably the better of the two IMO. I bought some Nitto's to replace worn out S Drives, mounted them on the rear and my ABS didn't like them. Moved them to the front and my S Drives to the rear to make it happy again. Go figure.
Keep in mind, the primary thing is the weight. So you could find 16 or even 17's Racing wheels that might be lighter than some 15's.
