The tire choice for your new wheels is the important part. The tire size and model will dictate how the car will feel. What I'm saying is, don't cheap out on tires.
Well, after testing fitting yesterday it looks like they are clearing without spacers...by several human hairs. That was with the wheel jacked up, ofc. But I'm thinking I might get away with it, so long as the tire is kept flush or narrower. 205/50/15 perhaps? Was checking these out based on a recommendation from a NASA guy for his street car.

Too cheap? Too big?
