As far as 225/45/15 street tire go, what options are out there now aside from RS3s?

I'm looking at going with a 225/45 on my 15x7 rota GT3s.

Not too many guys out there running 17" tires on their 15" rims. You are a pioneer!

Did I know it was a stupid question I could have easily searched for?

Yes I do.

I will be 100% honest, I had to think of something to post because I want to buy some stuff and I want to be able to post ads for the stuff I want to buy, I saw this thread, and thought it was semi-relevant.

However, I don't fault you as I know it was something that was pretty easily found via searching.

I guess I could have posted a "hey guys, I'm new" thread in general discussion for that.

I have the rota rb in gunmetal 15x7 and I think 35 offset with no center cap. They look nice and I haven't had any problems with them. They wouldn't have been my first choice, but they came with the car.

Guys, please research "bump steer" and "scrub radius"
Whilst a wider track and larger contact patch is better, there is a limit.

R888s are perfect for SM, where the sanctioning bodies require all the cars to run the same crappy suspension and same crappy tires. Those of us with a choice know better.
