Corded 2 tires at the auto-x yesterday so I was thinking about ordering some Nitto 450s to get by for a bit. I've had them on the street in the past and loved them so I figured what the hell, I'll try them against the cones and see how they do!
The largest size they have are 225/50/15. The next one down is 195/55/15.
They also have a 205/55/15 but that size doesn't show up as recomended for my car.
I am going to mount them on 15x7 wheels with +30 offset.
Has anyone used this size (225/50/15) or know which of the above will fit the best?

I run 225 45 15 on my car. They rub a bit in the rear and my front fenders are cut and flared. I have very little suspension travel. I know 225 50 15 and 205 55 15 would not work on my car, too much rubbing

This is how far they stick out now with 205/50/15s.




There is a little rub on the inner front wheelwell, but thats at full lock (usually caused by a overcorrecting fuck-up!) and even then its minimal, just some paint rubbed off a quarter sized spot. I'm thinking that's as wide as I want to go (205/50/15) but just unsure about any other sizes. Don't know if the 195/55/15 would be too narrow.

looks like the 205 55 15 may fit your car. Only one way to find out though. I hate nitto, so I know I would not go down the 195s. They will be slippery compared to those hoosiers.
