    As some of you might know, I am about to do a 5 lug swap on my corolla. the wheels I have chosen are a set of Varrstoen V3's in 16x8 with a +25 offset. Now, I am well aware this will require a decent roll of the fenders, but I am still up in the air about what tires to run, more specifically the size. I dont plan on dropping my car much more, if any, from its current ride height and with my upcoming 2zz swap, I also want some meat on the tires to make sure I have plenty of traction. I already have a c60 with a LSD installed and well I still spin a bit in 1st and wee bit in 2nd. This can only get worse once more power is added. I am currently on a 205/50r15 Nitto Neo Gen.

    I was looking into getting a set of 225'45R16 Dunlop Direzza 2's for the new wheels, but a bit worried about rubbing with the offset and width of the wheel. anyone have any experience with a similar setup? any imput?

    225s are kinda wide, I have 205s and I rub with those. Granted that's on a 7 inch rim with a +45 offset, but an 8 inch will definitely rub. I'll ask CorollaGT what tires he has, I believe his rims are 16x8 +20

    i had my mr2 16x7 and that rubbed like crazy on the rear...you have to either fold the arch lip completely or trim it.

    my 15x6.5 in the front also rubbed a bit but only when turning completely to one side

    yes, my spyder wheels have rubbed before the ground controls. i was planning on rolling the fenders flat and maybe pulling them a bit if needed

    A lot of it depends on the offset. If you want rims to fit, you can do it. It all depends on how much you really want them to fit.

    so after some searching i found this site:
    http://www.carid.com/tire-sizes.html

    which has a list of all current or semi current production tires sizes. 225'40R16 might be calling my name. its only 1.62% off on the 1010tires.com tire calc and should be plenty wide to give me traction. sidewall wise it might have very little flex. idk. i need to get the wheels and tires and try it out now. but first, 5 lug swap. might just pick up some 00+ celica gts wheels for now, so i can finish the 5 lug swap and 4 wheel disc

    They won't rub on the inside with 225s, I'm 99% sure.
