Default Too stretched for my rain setup?

Had a set of 9s and 205s.... Thoughts?
This will be my TT/weekend fun setup/drive to track.

My 225 for comparison

Looks OK to me. But I have 205 RA1's on 9s.

Totally fine. I've run 205 H20s on 9s before.

I'm currently in need of new tires and I only have 2 sets of 15x9 6UL's. I'd like to run 205's on my street/possible rain set. How are these working out for you? Any pics of the 205's on the car?

Anyone know of any 205's that run big for their size?
I'm currently on 225 RS3's but looking into R1R's for better rain grip.

I have a brand new set of 225 NTO1's for my track set.

R1R is the way to go if you may find yourself in the rain.
