195/50 or 205/50. What width are the wheels?

I would of thought with a 15x7.5 you'd need to run a 175 ot 185 tire to stop rubbing in a 60 or lower.

I run 195 on my 15 inch alloys and they have never rubbed and I've had the back sitting on the bump stops also with 5mm spacers

Not much visually but could be a big difference depending on how you plan to have the wheels fitted and looking... on a previous set of 15's I had 205's on the rear and 195's up front to stop rubbing on cornering (although I can't remember the wheel width)... depends on how you drive too Wink
It's hard to give a definitive answer I supose

205/55/r15 is not much bigger but would definitely be a big difference on a lowered car

185/55 r15 Imo.

Resonable night, will stretch tiny bit.
Resonable with and resonable price range.

Look for tyre with 'rim protective rib'. Its like extra lip / rubber excess that goes outside rim.
