205/50/15 Pics?

Does anyone happen to run this size tire? I just got some rims for dirt cheap and need some new rubber. I was told this was a good size tire for a 15x7 rim. I want a little fatter than stock look. Does anyone have a pic of what this size looks like on a 15x7 rim? I would appreciate very much!

For the time being...I am running on some 205/50-15's.........
I just got some Kumho Ecsta Supra 712's, and they ROCK !!

Soon, I will be getting some 17" MR7's with some Kumho 215/40-17.

And these are quite a bit fatter than the stock tire, and the side wall is about half the size.
This will create more wheel gap, as it did on mine...but it's temporary, and if you were to lower it an inch or so, it would
look pretty dam*n nice. Si's look nice lowered on thier stock 15" rims...am I wrong ?

Have you seen the new Konig Blatant...those are nice, but I wanted to get the Konig Tantrum, but they weigh like 28 pounds...
and the Motegi MR7's are identical to the Tantrum, and they only weigh 23.5 pounds. And I like the chrome center cap for the MR7's better !! So needless to say, i will go with the MR7's in silver !!

Antidote11, so the Kuhmo ECSTA Supra 712's look pretty phat on the 15 inch rims? They don't leave a big gap do they? I really don't want to lower the car at this point. Do you happen to have any pics of your current set-up?

Antidote11, nevermind I just found your pics in the member database. Dude, I like the look of your car. Nice! Would you consider selling those rims and tires? My girl likes those rims alot. This is her car, but I'm the one is charge of "making it pretty" It is still stock but I plan to get some Altezzas, clear the headlights, tint the windows and get some rims. L8tr!

No, the pics that are up now are with the stock tires...I just got the kumhos about 2 weeks ago.....and they do
leave quite a bit of well gap, but not too bad, they still look nice, and they handle a hell of a lot better than
the 185/65's, I can tell you that for sure.....and if you drop your car an inch or so, it will look good. But if you
don't plan on ever dropping your car, I would go with a larger wheel, and don't get 16's, because you will
wake up one day and say "Sh*it, I should have got the 17's." Trust me !! Check out the Eibach pro-kit, you
can't go wrong with that.

Sorry, missed your post.......I may be interested in selling them, or I might just keep them to race on, andhave the 17"s
for the roll around. But if I do decide to sell them, I will definitely post it !! And Tell your girl Thanks !! I appreciate that : )

Antidote11 - I ended up getting 16's and love em. 17's don't have enough rubber for where I live. Yokohama AVS db's are tight! They are the quietest tire I've ever had and grip like a biotch.
