Depends on a lot of other things. To narrow it down the most you need to think about the diameter of the tire. So assuming you are not going to drive around on a 275 hoosier, then that pretty much limits you to a 225. I say pretty much because I know there is a Toyo out there somewhere which is a 245 with the correct diameter as a 16", but I am ignoring that as well. So pretty much you are then limited to a 225/45/15 which can fit pretty easily depending on the front camber mostly. I track that size with -3 degrees of front camber.

For the wheel you pretty much need to run a 8". A 9" hits the front strut depending on the offset, and to push it out you will probably hit the fender with the tire.

I guess I should have been more specific. That's my fault.

What about the max size without rolling or adjusting camber?

Safely and exactly. 15x7.5" rim with a 42 offset and a 205/50/15 tire. A 225 will fit, but will rub in the rear on a car that's lowered more than 2". With the 205 and exactly what is listed above, no concerns whatsoever ever on ride height.

Thanks a ton! :)

Wheels are crap but look great. Thinking of getting Rota Grids instead
