I was wondering if I should put 15x6.5 195/45/15 or 16x7 205/40/16. I don't know what to do since I have a really low drop can someone help. <p></p><i></i>

You are going to rub with either of them if you don't get a good offset 35+ or perhaps better. The 16's will still rub on turns in the back, you can have the fenders trimmed, then it won't rub. <p></p><i></i>

You have no chance of tucking in the 7's. Even with a 45 mm offset which only leaves about 4mm clearance with 205's on the inside between the tire and the wall, your rims and tires will stick out about 1inch past the inside lip of the fender.<br><br>If you can get 6's go with them. 6.5's with 45mm offset and cutting the lip will usually work. <p></p><i></i>

depends, if your car is lowered then there will be neg.camber<br>which may help clearance in wheel well.<br>also some 205,195, etc... are wider than others -different manufacturers<br><br><br>i use 16x7 - 43offset , khumo 205/40/16, rolled rear fender lips, front is ok<br><br>*konis and HR springs<br><br>my friend has one with 15 rims (dont know the offset or width) he has rubbing probs (prob wrong offset), his tires look just as wide as my 205's and also sticks out more<br>*stock suspension <p><P><A HREF="http://www3.telus.net/tc2468/">Tom's Webpage</A></P><P><A HREF="http://www3.bc.sympatico.ca/tc2468/swiftgti/ssgti90/ssgti90_pics.html"><IMG SRC="http://www3.bc.sympatico.ca/tc2468/small2.gif" BORDER=0 WIDTH=60 HEIGHT=45></A></P></BODY></HTML></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://pub83.ezboard.com/utc2468.showPublicProfile?language=EN>tc2468</A>  <IMG SRC="http://www.ezboard.com/ezgfx/gicons/anim_1.gif" BORDER=0> at: 10/4/01 10:33:59 am<br></i>

well I have a really low drop likw 2.5" a least maybe a touch more. I would really like to go with 15" to keep it more for the street ( CRX's don't like me <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> ) and I think they suit the car's look more than 16's do. I have stock suspension except for whitline swaybars fron't/rear and an omp front strut brace. I think 195/45 15 with a 45mm offset will work.<br> <p></p><i></i>
