205/65/15s will they fit

Postby beretta777 » Tue Jul 30, 2013 8:00 pm

I found a bunch of Michelin rally racing tires cheap but there 205/65/15s wondering if they will fit on a Beretta or if they will rub on the strut. I'm doing off road racing so these tires would be great if they would fit?

The 65 aspect ratio is going to be hideous. (Tall)
But they should fit on a 15 X 7 crosslaced rim ok

Yes! But your FDR (gearing) will suffer.

You saying final gearing cause I run it in 1st and it barely comes out to second and is tuned to not shift till 5800 and shifts harder than stock when does.

Give them a try. You will probably be fine.

Just have fun

I don't see any problems with that ratio, as I've been considering the same for my Corsica, once I get the N-Body brake swap done.

I'm not a big fan of the "Big Wheel-Low Profile Tire" look that's been popular the past decade. I may only be 28, but I like more sidewall like the old-school crowd.

Might be because I live in rural Labrador though, which doesn't take kindly to that kind of setup. I've heard of many people being stuck in town with their cars because of how hard the gravel highways are to their fancy big rims and low profile tires.
