Alright I got a set of 15inch rims finally.... My question is what size tires to put on them and how wide can I go? I was thinking some 195/50/15's but if I can go wider it would be nice....

I'm running 205/50r15 Falken Azenis. They are a WIDE 205. I'm very low, and with the right alignment and a small spacer out back, i do not rub on my 15x7 38mm offset Rota GT3s.

I would stick with the 195/50. YOu do not really need to go wider for traction etc etc unless you are planning alot of modifications.

I have no idea I just know they are 15's..... they are icw 5 stars. I do plan on doing some heavy mods soon.... I have a built 1.5 scoupe pistons, shot peened rods, p&p head, milled out .25mm to raise the compression to 8:1 and am sourcing a turbo for it now. So wide would be good ;-) I do plan on a drop soon as I want to do all my suspension before I change the engine over. 195/50 is what I was looking at with a nice set of tires...

I have 195/50, but would like 205/50 for auto-x. Daily driving/hard driving on my 195/50 is great (cheaper too).

195/50 here also, on 15x6.5" rims. Quite happy with them. :)

on a lighter note, what kinda turbo are you looking for? I have a ton of 'spare' parts for my dsm if you are looking for something like a 14b w/ intercooler combo

Im hoping to find something to bolt right to my manifold. Im sure that one I would have to have the flange cut and rewelded :cry:

I can try and find a pic of the flange if you want it, but I also have a dsm manifold (that needs a crack repaired) that if it fit your car I'd just give it to you to get it out of my garage.

Im pretty sure that a dsm manifold wont fit. If its a dsm flange it wont fit my manifold either, it has to be a standard garett flange or the nissan style flange
