Post 225/50R15's fit with H&R springs...
... without rubbing?

I'm gonna get a set of rims with a -27 offset so they'll stick out, with some BF Goodridge drag radials... eitherwise I'm stick using the 205/50R15's, but I want more rubber to the ground.

I run 225/50/15s on my tokico/dropzone setup. It's about as large as you can fit before you have to use spacers and/or very low offset rims. Here's some pics. I forget the offset of my rims, either 40, 38, or 35. I got them in a 6.5" wide rim to accommodate for the offset and move the physical centerline out to avoid rubbing the struts. They're microscopically close, but they don't rub.

Thanks hppwdn... yeah, I'm gonna have a -27 offset, so they're gonna stick out hell mad and away from my struts.

I'm mounting some 225/50R15 BF Goodridge Drag Radials on these...

They're 15x8... and if they're -27 offset I should be far far away from any suspension.

I wanna see pics when that's done. Should be a pretty crazy looking setup. My 13x8s for slicks stick out and they're only at a +4 offset.
