Anyone have an idea what width tyre I can get away with on an 8 inch rim without it being silly?

Online says that minimum is 215mm for an 8 inch rim but I wanted to run 205/50r15 NanKang AR-1

I know this may seem like a stupid question to some but track tyres tend to be wider than road tyres.

Running 205/45 on my 7j. I would think 8j they'd be a slight stretch not major but my 205s fit my 7j perfectly so I would've thought 215 would then suit 8 as you say

Since you saying this I managed to cop a couple photos of friends old wheel setups and they assured me they were 205/50 r15 on a 15x8. they looked pretty good tbf.

Spoon have brought back the SW388 in 5x114.3 so I ordered a set. Cant wait for them to arrive. was going to wrap them in Nankang AR-1 after seeing the tyre comparisons on speed academy

Oh fair enough then mate! Either way I'm sure they'd look good. I just know that 205s fit my 7j perfectly.
Haha speed academy nice to see another viewer. You got some genuine spoon wheels coming damn very nice! Saw some on the wall when we visited spoon, wanted to grab a set and run lol!
