New Wheels! I has ?'s!

Just picked up some new 16x7 Rota Circuit 8's for autoX. I was wondering what size tires you guys would recommend, I want something a little on the meaty side
(tires aren't mine, and sorry for the shity pics, it was late)

Re: New Wheels! I has ?'s!

Are you going to be using them for strictly autoX? So I guess you don't care about the accuracy of the speedo and that junk.

If your doing daily driving in them use this tire size calculator :

I'd go with: 215/45R16

yeah but I think you can also get brake problems if you get tires with a bigger diameter then stock

Re: New Wheels! I has ?'s!

I used a tire calculator to calculate this. So the diameter should stay roughly the same or within spec anyway. I'm not too informed on suspension and rims but I'd assume that it would work!

Yeah the tires you told him to get would be good, but you said if he used it only for autox he could get bigger, but that's where the brakes could **** up.

Re: New Wheels! I has ?'s!

Yeeea.. I never really said go any bigger than those. I think anything else and you might get some rub issues But again, I'm no expert on tires by any means. I just knew where to locate the calculator and picked the meatiest tires on it

If you want to play it safe go 205 45 16, that is what is most recommend for 16 inchers.

Thanks for the help guys! Rep for all you Also, I plan on going lower in the future, does that mean I'll need even smaller tires?
