we didn't like the 225 50 15s on our NA (didn't do well for lap times being taller like that) but I can see where it would be beneficial for turboed cars

15x7 is the max wheel size in SCCA's ITA class. Most cars run 205s or 225s, literally hundreds of race cars running 225s on 15x7s without any problems/concerns. Our car runs 205 BFG R1's on 15x7 panasports and they feel pretty darn good to me.

I never even thought about the ITA requirements since I just run my RA1 205s in ITA with my SM and don't change anything on the car. Go figure!
