Anyone running 195-45-15? Or 185-45-15

Recommended Posts

Slamming my wagon on 15x7 and still debating what tire size to get. Want to see if anyone has used this size tire and if there's any pictures of them on a 510. These tire sizes are pretty popular in the MK1 VW community just haven't seen them on Dimes.

 

Had 195-45's on my old MK1 Scirocco and MK1 Pickup but just want to see them on a 510 B)

You find some fins yet?

There's a 165/45/15 also iirc.

 

I did find some and Im pumped! thx for askin

 

Yea I've seen the 165-45's but the stretch is too much and they don't look all that safe. If I were to go 195-45's then it would have to be Toyo Proxies since those are the only ones to have a slight stretch on a 7" wheel. The Nexen & Federals of that size have no stretch at all on a 7".

There's also 185-45R15 Nankang's but pretty steep at $480 for 4. Black Forest seems to be the only people in the US to carry them. Here's a pic of them on a 7" wheel.

i have some Nexens (Korean) 195 45 15 from Tires Easy. was about 55-60 apc

I pick these as I am running +25mm Rota RBs on stock rims. I was worried the tire would hit the strut tube.

205s would be OK in the back

Those nankang 185's look good. I'm also looking for tires myself and I might go with the toyos if the stretch is more than the others. I'll be running a 7.5 wide rim in the rear and the 205/50's are too big.

I bought the mk2r's so I can rob them of the barrels.

So I ended up purchasing 2 sets of wheels which will be taken apart and then reassembled to create 1 set with the size/offset/look that I want to run. This is what they will look like when finished.

I have very similar wheels to those spoked ones, Different brand (Weds) and not as nice of a center, but the spokes and the 2 piece design are the same.

 

What was the size and offset of the barrel on your spoked wheels jefe? They might be a nice change for my centers.

no wonder you asked about SSR fins LOL. Those things are nice. You're gonna use the Finned faces though right?

Yea I've seen yours, they're called Weds Bavaria II. You beat me to the punch on those, they were priced very cheap.

Yeah , the fin faces.

The spare face/barrels will be reassembled and sold.

Sorry for the thread jack. ;)

naw no problem man. Those widths/offsets are going to look great on your dime. Get some stretch on those tires and try not to go too crazy on negative camber, I hate negcamber :hmm:

Yep, SSR fins rock! But my little research shows that they copied Weds... I prefer the center on the SSRs, sure I could get them to work.

The ssr faces might not fit the weds Bavaria. I don't think the face diameter is the same. 

The weds have a step lip right?

^^Nice, did the weds come out of southern cali?

 

Coolerow:

You find tires yet?

onlinetires has toyos at $350 shipped to cen-cal.

$50 bucks cheaper if you do local pickup.

I'm thinking of going through them unless I find something cheaper/local.

yea he got them from a guy in LA, I missed out but at least im getting some really nice ones

 

I always buy from Onlinetires they are the cheapest around anywhere. Im also going 195-45 Toyos, the 185's are too expensive for being Nankangs, bump that

 

ps:

 

STEP LIPS > STRAIGHT LIPS

Update on the 195's.

 

Onlinetires has the toyos listed on their website but they don't have them in stock.

I had to settle on the nexens.

I wish they would update their site.

I didn't ask but it kinda sounded like they wouldn't carry them anymore.

I suggest you call them first before ordering. Their website doesn't match what they have in stock. I didn't find out until after I had made my payment :/
