Well I am tired of my tires hitting the fenderwells (205/75/15), mainly the passenger side, so its time for a set of smaller tires. Any reason why you would get one over the other? About the same, just like .4" difference. I've searched and these seem to be the most common sizes so thats why Im asking. Thinking of getting the 225's...

I would go with the 225s, I have minimal rubbing with a strong 5/6 drop. They fit well on the rim with just enuff bulge.

The fronts just rub the frame under full lock and just clear the rolled lips. The rears just clear the slightly rolled wheellip and have good clearance on the inside.

I sped mine up so the color looks more like yours....nice truck btw



Yeah, I just lightly and slowly hammered the lip up so it did not catch the side of the tire, on one well the paint just cracked so I filled it with touch up paint, but it was the one I did the most front right always rbbed more.

Yeah...

FYI in the pic I am running out a four cone slalom and will hit third and 120 kph before braking hard at the end of the stockcar oval, I couldn't get away with leaving it in second. Man was that thing drifting hard between the cones and way too close to the wall...they have since removed that slalom section for that reason. This was right at the last cone and just ready to shift.
