Will a 205 tire fit on a 7.5" wide wheel? Will it look normal or all stretched and distorted. Any info. would be appriciated. Thanks in advance.

im running a 205 on my Fat Fives, i think they are 7.5"

they look just fine
for some reason think your wheels are either 5.5" or 6.5" wide Ryan.

I run 205s on my 6.5" wheels with no problems at all

I'm running 205/40-16's on 7.5" rims. If a better pic doesn't come up by the end of the day, I'll post some when I get a camera in my hands.

^Yeah, they'll look that way. But why else get the larger width and not run a wider tire? I think 7.0 is perfect, thus my purchase of 4 14" used Diamond racing rims.

Here's what 205/40-R16's look on a 7.5" rim:



I think a wider tire may scrub my inner wheel well, but I'm not too sure.

I like this look - only problem is: you've got curb rash a lot easier when parking. :D

Please - no comments on the wheel to fender gap - I'm working on it. If only those Pro-Dampers would come in!!! :sadface:
