ok can you kind of explain that to me and I dont know if they are stock wheels they are chromed brb gonna check them

ok they are prime rims so I take it theyre not stock I kind of think my wheels are to skinny so can I get some wider ones I mean is that smart?
and what do the numbers mean? like I know r15 is the rim size lol but thats it*

no I will lower it later on down the line like a inch but that will be like atleast 5 maybe 6 months cause im tryin to get her solid but i NEED tires so thats why im gettin them lol dont want to have a blow out and BAM hit someone/something ya know
And I dont have a dounut spare =( so i can take the risk

the first number is the mm's wide across the tire and the second number in the mm from the edge of the rim to the top of the tire in any direction

oh as far as new wheels.......that wouldnt be a bad idea but i think you have more serious problems for now.....get a pic up here of the wheels.....even if they are 7 inches wide you will still be fine with a 225 60.....

yeah im not sure that is a real common size and it might be more expensive......if that is the case just do the 225 60.....thats what i have in a cooper cobra and they were 85 a piece mounted and balanced......michelan ?spelling? cooper kumho there are plenty and bfg are all alright......its not near as big a deal with our cars because they are so lite as far as gettin the best tire

then try to find some used weld rims and tires ( 350 - 500 with tires ) these are lighter then stock and your car will accelerate quicker

damn i forgot his name lol but he said get some weld rims what do you think
cause i will have a little over 5 so I could get them because I dont really like my rims anyway haha but if they are that cheap i could get some i have seen rims for 800 and up without tires
