Yeah I guess it doesn't seem to matter. My car has studs, but I have a feeling they'd run straight even with stock bolts as long as you're careful snugging them up.

How does a 16x7.5 et35 wheel with a 215/45 tire sound? Thinking of some BBS RY055's

Yeah, I like the sizing. Just inquiring to see if they are still available. I need to check to make sure the center bore isn't too small.. we need a 57.1 or bigger correct?

Was there any rolling/mod work needed to make this set-up work?
Are there wheel-well differences between touring and coupe?

Any thoughts on 195/75/14 on 14" weaves or bottle caps fitting without issue? Overall diameter is 26.1".

That is huge, is that for rallye? On tarmac those sidewalls would be terrible.

I think they will fit but you could see rubbing up front with the wheels turned.

Yeah, but I'm not doing it anymore. It's not technically legal (not that anyone cares since we're hardly competitive, dam 2.5rs'..) for stock anyway, since 15" is stock equipment and the wheels need to be all the same dimensions. I took an angle grinder to the winter tires though and made deep sipes.

I wish I could find an all terrain, like the BFG Traction T/A in 195/65/15. But if we're wishing pointless wishes, I also wish that the $750 ix I bought for rallyx wasn't a huge colossal piece of shit. Hah.

Keyshawn- what's wrong with ix wheels and gravel tires? Or grinder to high speed rated tires? Why are 2.5rs faster than ix?

Better suspension. Gravel tires aren't legal in stock class. Must be dot legal. If you know of a tire that's dot legal for gravel or dirt, post it.

I am thinking of getting 195/65/15 Goodyear ultra grip winter tires and modifying the tread pattern. I don't know how long I want to spend on the though

Would running a really aggressive all season work?
