Is there a difference between 225 and 215 type tires with 17 inch rims? Is it a big noticeable difference? Which would look better on my 1992 Toyota Camry. Thanks

Sorry, I forgot this question, what's the aspect ratio you would want with the different widths?

I got the Konig Technics 17x7.0 for my 1992 Toyota Camry. The tires either have to be 215/50/17 or 225/45/17 those are the two ratios I have for these rims. People tell me to get the 225 because it's wider and it'll look better on my car but is there a real noticable difference between the 225 and 215? Thanks

Here, try http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html

Select the two different sizes, one in the stock and one in the new catigory, and it will tell you most, if not all, of the dimensions of the tires.
