PostSubject: tire fitment issues....   June 13th 2010, 5:35 am

so i have some 17x7's i'm putting on my car.. slammed 92 teggy. the tires that were on them were 215/45 and they rubbed like mad when i turned sharp. they only rub on a splash gaurd on the inside of the wheel wel but clear everything else. so i'm selling those and am getting some new rubber but i'm not sure what to get... i was thinkin 195/40 but cant find any made by anyone other then yokahoma. i found some deals on 205/40's but would like a little stretch to help the clearance issue. so my questions r would the stretch help a bunch? and how much of a stretch is a 195 on a 7" wheel? if i can i would perfer to avoid spacers...

a 195 is 7.6" wide so it will not be a stretch at all.

It might be a little bit of a stretch. The 7.6" is the section width so that will be the widest part. Your beads would stretch just a little.

That's not a stretch ha ha, I've seen 215's on 10" wide wheels. Stupid people on zilvia ha ha. Just teasing Nate your car looked good in the pics I saw from the SCCA's.
