I am debating what size to get 215/45 or 205/50 I am going to be using these on stock rims I will be using them for daily driving and AutoX for about 2 months. I am then getting a new set or Rims and tires for Daily use. What do you guys think?
215/45 will give you a wider tread width, and also it will most likely be cheaper since 215/45 is a more common size than 205/50. Only disadvantage is the speedometer will read 1.84% too fast, which isn't a lot really.
Ended up getting the 215/45s they look about the same size as the 205s I had on wiered.. anyway aceleration grip seems good as well as braking. Cornering I'll have to wait till this weekend to try them out at an AutoX since I almost recked leaving the tire shop . The first corner I took at a little over 40mph was a 90 degree turn and I lost the rear thank god for autox didn't get scared just corrected the steering and back straight forward AHH wut fun . I'll post some pics once I get the car cleaned. :klavergreg:
