Question 15x9 and 225/50/15

Hey i know there is already a few very vague threads on this.
I have a set of varrstoen v1s which are out of production i think but i got a good trade for some other wheels i had that i wasnt very confident in. i think stretching a 205 will be unsafe so 225s it is. all the 225/45s are really expensive so i was wondering if anyone that is lowered has fit the 50s. my fenders were rolled and flared before i got the car(rather poorly especially up front and i have access to a roller if further work needs done). so my main concern is inside fenders and bumper clearance. i wanna stay sub $100 per tire thats why i ask. im broke at the moment.

reasons why lazy newbs are annoying:
1) post in the completely wrong section. like, not even close
2) ask a very commonly discussed question
3) pretend like it's really hard to find the info which is easy to find
4) almost never actually do any searching
5) are cheap/broke and do stupid things to save 2 dollars
6) I'm too tired to list the rest

I'll answer your question:
they will rub the insides of the top of the fenderwells on big bumps
Try harder next time.

+1, just in case you didn't trust 18psi. I ran 225/50/15's one time and it rubbed the top of the front wheel wells on bumps. It annoyed me enough I bought shorter tires. How bad it is will depend a lot on how low you are and how stiff your suspension is.

Arbitrary budget decision before any research completed = wasted money and goals not achieved. Spend more money or don't bother buying tires

okay thanks guys thats what i was looking for. sorry 18psi ive never been part of a forum before and it literally took me 10 minutes to find anything about posting and im not what one would call technologically challenged. i did a couple days of research but it was still fuzzy. im sorry im not trying to blow all my savings because i havent started my job yet im just a kid trying to do finances right even though my first mistake was modding cars. ill just wait and get some 225/45s and start saving for the next set cause 220tw is 200tw.

You're not technologically challenged, but you can't figure out the different sections on a forum?

Are you implying that the issue is literacy, or lack thereof?

Thats why i got on in the first place.
