Default Need some pics of 7.5" rims with 225 tires

Hey guys,
I'm looking to put some 225/45/15's on my 6ul's that I already have. My wheels are 7.5". I'm looking for some pictures of 225 sized tires on 7.5" wheels. I need to see how the side walls look.

Please only ad pics of 225 tires and 7.5" wheels.

Thanks

it will buldge a bit. 225/45/15 on a 15x8 will have a striaght sidewall. (this is with nt01) different brands will differ by a small amount.

Try to find coverage of any scca regional event and look for ST civic hatches or STS miatas. Most guys run the special 195 toyo, but some run 225 kooks or toyos.

^ I wish I could find a picture of the 225/50/15 drag radials I had on my stock 15x6's, that was a tight enough squeeze to get any miata driver all worked up.

I'm posting my 215/45/16s on 7.5" just because everything is about me.



no power bludge here, flat like I like my men's chests.

Any drag radial shots? I'll keep my 15x7's if there is a fatty tire that I can use that doesn't have viagra induce sidewall stiffness.
