Now I have a set of 99 15x6.5"s I don't know what to do with. I wanted to run them because they look so good, but I was afraid of 6.5" rolling the sidewall on a 225.
they are 15X6 not 6.5

Got all 4 now. I think it looks a little better than my old stuff. I know it looks high, but everything is on its way to fix that. Oh and a side note, it runs now!

My personal favorite view.

very nice
the 225 rs2's on 15x7 will be my next combo too. allways thought 225 would be too wide for a 7" wheel but it seems ok

huh, I've got 225's on my 15x7 wheels and the sidewalls aren't nearly as flat as that. I wouldn't go any wider on mine but it looks like you could easily try a 235...

im going 225/50/15 rs2 on konig rewind 15x7 this time. thats once i sell my 16s and have enough $$ to dump on 2 more konig rewinds (have 2 already) + tires.

i also need to get some 275/40/19s for my 350z. rears are pretty much gone already. freaking tires for 19" wheels are SOOOOOOOO expensive!
