Rim and Tire Question?

I just got a set of 15x7 40offset rims yesterday and I went to mount one on the sol today just to see if it fit before I put tires on the rim. but it looks like the rim is to close to the fork thingy. its only like 1/2inch away, plus the rim seems to be sticking a tiny but out pass the fender. but anyways, my question is more about tires. can I run a 205/50/15 on a del sol thats lowered 1.8inchs with out rubbing?.

i believe its a 205/45/15...

del sols i think are a 195/50/15 stock and when you bump up width you drop one in height... so you have to go to a 45 profile...

I think your offset should have been 42+

meh. the rims only come in 40offset so Im kinda screwed there. I think I may mount up one tire and put some wight on it and see if it makes any difference.

no. Krown.

and I put a rim on the rear to try today it its still close but it doesnt stick out as far as the front (figures) but it will clear a 205 easy. so I may have to change the brand of tires I wanna go with and put a 205 on the rear and a 195 on the front.

BTW. the rims are Konig Rewinds

anyone who was wondering, I got the tires mounted today and the rims fit perfect.

ends up the way I only jacked up the car on one corner made the rim "look" like it stuck out.
