Sport Max 002's 15x8 zero offset will run 195/50-15 tires and that should fit... I'll post when I get the tires...
Aussie Ed said:if you don't mind me asking, why are you wanting to get such skinny tyres???
195 would have to be stretched to fit onto the 15x8 which would leave a bit of a gap between the side wall and the lip of the rim.
personally i wouldn't get anything smaller than 235/50/15 if i had 15x8 rims.
REN69 said:What offset are your wheels??? both of them.. I like goooold! but the sportmax are ok also.
but wouldn't stretching the tyres compromise other things like grip and stability??Wraith said:I just like the stretched look ... Plus I dont think I can fit 235/50-15 tires on my Toyota Echo... Stretching tires is a way to fit wide wheels on small cars... I stretched 205/50-15's on 15x8 before on my echo ...
actually, stretching actually hardens the side walls. And grip is about just the tire... But, if you stretch too much might actually pop a beed. Like I wouldnt put 175/60-15's on these wheels... but stretching tires is an old trick by car enthusiast for a long time. Long time ago they didnt offer 40 or 35mm side walls especially in 14's or 15'sAussie Ed said:but wouldn't stretching the tyres compromise other things like grip and stability??
