In Reply to: What is the widest rim I can mount a 205/55r16 posted by Tire on? on January 30, 2001 at 22:24:47:

Well, I currently run 225/50's on 16x7.5 et20 replica's from Discount Tire. I didn't like the heavy feel that came along with the transition from the original 200/60r390's. Guess I'll start looking for a Hartge type setup of 16x7's in the front with 205/55r16's and 16x8 rears with 225/55's. Already had to trim the life out of the rear fenders (down to 8-10mm) so I've got the room in the back.

Thanks for your help guys.

I just bought a set from Ebay and now have a chance at some sharp 16x8 e34 rims. Just wonder if I'm out a set of tires.

P.S. Not trying for the ghetto look. I want to make sure they would still look right.
