Was curious about whta size wheels you are running with tires? I am In the market for new ones and have a debate against 15s and 16s running 205/45/16 or 205/50/15.

any help would be much appreciated.

This question wasn't directed to me but I'll weigh in anyway. I was running 195/50/15's on the rims in the photos, have sinced swapped to 205/40/17's on my new rims. I love the stiffness, but I also have SRS springs with Boge turbo's all around. I can rub tires if I have the kids in the back, and can occasionally touch the right front if driving VERY aggressively.

Check your local laws because some states have now adopted rules to mandate tires sizes within +/- 5% or so of factory supplied.

1010 tire.com has a very handy tire size calculator on it.

Hope this helps.

the wheels that were on the car when those pics were taken were 16" with 205/40... now I'm running 15's with 195/50's, but when I get new tires i'm going with 195/45 for a slightly lower profile

Yay some other New Englanders with rabbits! We got ours for a couple-hundred bucks and basically restored the whole thing. The good news was that it was from Florida so it had no rust! It's a '84 Rabbit.

My sister lives in Fenway, right near the green monster, too! Too bad the sox aren't doing so well. We live in seacoast, NH.
