      I can't stand that mentality. Spend a few days looking and researching. Figure out what widths+offsets mean. Figure out what those fancy tire numbers mean. Go outside and measure your wheels. "Build" your own stance - not someone elses.

      You would need 195s to even remotely stretch on a 7.5" wheel.

      215/35s?

      If so, run an 8mm or 10mm spacer.

      When Santorum ran them, he said the 225/35's rubbed so I figured to go with the 215/35's. I replaced 2 of the tires with 215's just to see how they ran and looked. Perelli's p-zero nero's don't look right stretched. Getting all new in the spring when the wheels are done, just not sure what to get

      Don't put 195's on your 7.5" wheels. That's going to look like ****. Stick with a 215 or 225 and don't worry about stretch on 7.5" wheels

      Ya 195s or 205s I don't think will look good but I haven't seen them. I think I'll put 215s on and be happy with it. I do want Interlagos's as well. Maybe 215s on those as well.

      Interlagos are 18x8 +41. You'd be fine with 215/40s.

      I've ran 2 different wheels with this exact specs... a 7mm spacer should put you flush

      I ran 225/35's on my BLQ's and 215/35's on the DPE's..... 215/35's are rubber bands
