i already have 205/50/15s and i have no reason to buy new tires if they do not look too bad. Also there isnt an all season in that size so im doing what i want not what everyone else likes.

i understand why i should have 225's but i have already accepted that i am going to atleast try the 205's my car isnt going to be on the track And yes i could of bought the x8 wheels but once again im not buying a second set when i want the x9s and at the end of the day well its my money bitches.

aha this thread turned into a cry baby bitch fest and i didnt even get to see hustler say anything entertaining.


streching the hell out of all seasons

Still man, stretching the hell out of an all-season greatly reduces the (few) pros of running an all-season. Beyond the actual tread pattern/compound, in limited grip situations and especially heavy rain and snow..you WANT plenty of side wall, you want a narrower contact patch, and you want side wall/carcass flex. Stretching a 205 over a 9" rim takes away all three of these characteristics which play a vital roll in foul weather traction

No, but I tried being a man, getting a job, and buying several sets of 6UL's and it worked out wonderfully.

I dont think anyone who gets these, are getting them because they are marginally cheaper than the 6ULs. Its like a $40 per wheel delta...not exactly ballin out with your $189 wheels

You're missing the point. I don't need anything on this car. it's 100% want. I have 2 perfectly good sets of wheels. I'm not going to spend "want money" on less than a 9" wheel.

I seriously considered the Rota K7s before I bought another set of 6ULs. The Rotas are not bad at all IMO.

Not sure what there is to regret. All wheels are round and spin the same, the K7s are slightly heavier than the 6ULs, slightly lighter the the C3ms, and priced right in between the two (shocker).

The real issue is getting a set, they are sold out and have not hard ETA for a new batch, but its at least a month out

Exactly. There are three options that, style differences aside, offer reduced weight for more cost: C3M, K7, and 6ULs. Pick your price point.

I chose to pay more for the 6ULs since right now they are strictly for track duty and the reduced weight is welcome. Plus the 6ULs are clearly the most awesome of the three above choices.

You do realize the only tires wider than a 225 for a 15 inch rim are Hoosier R6/A6, right? For the street any of the 8 inch offerings will work with the available street tires and I doubt anyone could tell the difference (between 8 and 9).
