Tire Talk: What size?

Well my birthday is coming up (Sept.27) so I'm going to be lowering my car
soon (secret). Anyways..

I need help deciding on what tire size to go with. Right now I'm on the stock
EX/Si wheels. It has 185/65/15 tires on it right now. I was thinking of going
195/50/15. Any other suggestions? *I plan on having a 1 finger gap up front
and 1 1/2 - 2 finger gap in the rear. Help me out people!

Really?
So I'm guessing that's the widest tire I can put on the stock ex/si wheels
correct?

Re: Tire Talk: What size?

I don't know if that is the "widest" but it is what I was running on my EX sedan. There are pics in my sig.
I was running the Nitto NT 450 in a size 205/55/15
Just click the picture for the tires info:



Also for the best price check out the other link in my sig. I promise no one can beat this guys prices. Just tell him that Alpha 5 told you to call or pm.

Re: Tire Talk: What size?

diff, size of the rims affacts the gap look between the fender and the tire.
if u having 17" rims and up, two finger gap on the front, one finger gap on the back is the max. lowing u can have witout rubbing problem.
