Hi, I am looking to get some banded steelies for my Arosa and not 100% sure which tires to get for them. I'd like 13x7 front and 13x8 rear with about the same level of stretch as the rims below. I'm running coilovers at the minute so suspension is not an issue.

I have 155/70R13 at the moment, would they be okay?

I've got some xxr's in 15x8.25 was thinking of using toyo proxes............ But what size? ? ? ?

Will get arches rolled if necessary and I'm on coil overs.

I like the stretch look and these wheels are on the wide side but I still want to be able to feel confident when cornering.

So I've tried some 205 45 15 toyo's on my 15x8.25 XXR's.

Not enough stretch, so will be trying a 165 45 15 next.
