im rollin on 7J et24's or 25's, Currently on 205 55's as some of you may know.. silent

Just wondering, will they tuck easily if they were on just normal tyres... 195 45's for instance
Cause on the 205's they're no where near tucking tbh.. i know 205 55's are huge n alla that but....
Bottom line is i don't really want to have to fork out for stretched tread at the mo..or have arch work

Anyone got any pics of a 7J et24/5 on a 195/45 or 50 on an EK (slammed preferably..)



I know 7j's aren't exactly wide but...

I had 205 on my temp BBS on a 7j rim and i can tell you for a fact that the rear wont tuck and the front will just about but there will be some arch rubbing as mine ripped alot of my arch liner out. with 195's you can get away with it (i had 195/45 on my comps and no rubbing occurred)

Have you rolled your arches yet?

This could be a cheaper option than replacing tyres??

rolled arches wont clear 205's at et25

I KNOW tthat 165's work because i was running lower than et 25, 7j with 165's and cleared without even doing arch work

im going to go down the 165 ruite i just cant find anywhere that
can give me a set of decent part worn 165's
and i've been told to stay away from stretched nankangs...

195's are popular so you can always pick them up cheep

Looks like im just gonna have to wait a while tbh.. get myself some Bridgestone Potenza's
Heard good things about them.. bit pricey though. might only get them on the front..
Some 195's might hopefully tuck in at the back (got two nearly new 195's in the gaden) Laughing

Was gonna say a 165 15 tyre isn't really common at all unless it has a silly profile which then pretty much defeats the object. I'd suggest camber adjusters although by the time you've bought those and had it altered to suit you may aswell have just splashed out for the tyres lol

195 will do a job of tucking at the rear i would of thought. Im rolling on Nankangs and there not bad at all with stretch (165/40/16's).

Have you pulled your arches yet?
maybe with enough pull you could get the 195's to tuck

if you could post a pic of how it sits atm from a couple angles i could tell you

Isn't really a good angle either tbh, look like they'd tuck there

I'm currently running 215/40/16 on my EM1 and they clear my unrolled arches. I do have camber arms though. 55 is a big ass profile, I'd have thought 195/45/15 would go in there !

Well.. forgot about this lol

Im on 195 50's on the back now and 185 55's on the front
(sound massive but they're actually not that big..) didn't buy the tyres though had them in my shed on some old alloys.. thought they were a lot bigger profile than they were untill i checked

All tucks now though.. JUST. had to cut up my arch liners a bit though but meh

Yuppp.. slowly Rolling Eyes And nah man, i havent even got enough lows on the back to be tuckin,
i need to take the adjusters out but i need to borrow my friends gun to get all the bolts off easy.. i don't think it'll tuck without an arch roll though

Shit bein 18 with well, not really a "job" Sad can't do the shit i want to lool
But yeahh i was back n forth most of the night so i couldnt really socialize properly, probably looked like a unsociable twat lol
Next time i'll stick around Laughing
