Wheel/Tyre Pic request...

Post by Tee3 » Sat Mar 12, 2011 10:47 pm

Just considering the tyre size for my mk1.

the wheels are decided... 15x7 Zenders:

205/50/15 would seem the ideal size, dont want to go any wider, but might go down to 195 depending how they look....

sooo.... any pics of your mk1s running 15 and known tyres sizes?

thanks

195/50R15 would give you the correct rolling radius. i think a 205/50 may look slightly too tall, you may be better with a 205/45

yeah, only 2% over though so i figure the extra width is worth it.

I think i might raid the scrap tyre pile at work and see if i can find some to try before i buy failing any pics

cheers

HI,

These are 195/50/15.
I wouldn't go to 205/50/15 - they'll look like big doughnuts.
I think 185/55/15 or 195/45/15 look best.
