These will fit fine at stock height and on moderate lowering springs with a 205 to 215 tire.
If you want to run a 225 you may start having issues with the inner fender tab if lowered more than 1" or so. (assuming you're on coilovers at that point)
This largely comes down to tire size, and unfortunately not all 205-225s are created equal so it varies.

We are planning on running the Falken RT660 in a 215/45 and Mountune springs on our car.
The RT660 runs wide and in a 215, is more comparable to other 225s.
Expecting this fitment:

It would be sweet if you could get Advan to bring in THOSE wheels for our direct fitment. [wink] [thumb]

The RT660 is just as wide as any other of the 215 offerings and is actually .1 thinner than the outgoing RT615K+ at 7.5" tread width.

Its also funny that the Federal RS-Pro in a 205/45 is actually WIDER by .2 than the Falken, BFG offerings in 215.

225's(measured at 8" tread width) are the best option but the damn height kills us. Would love a 225(8" tread width) in a 23.5" tall tire(would be between a 40-45 aspect ratio) but no one makes one. So, i guess coilovers are required to prop the car up a bit to clear everything within the fender.

Sadly, most (if not ALL) coil over kits for these cars out there will not even allow you to get the car high enough to clear an, 8" wide, 24.0"/24.1" tall tire. [:(] [mad]

I plan on putting 225's on mine once i wear my 205s out. I am currently on B8's and Swift springs. Ive measured everything possible from my current setup and i believe it will clear without any "massaging" of anything. The good thing is if i need a little bit of space, the Bilstein B14 kit i already planned on buying can give me a little height back if needed at the top end of its adjustment range.

So ill make a thread when i start the process. The extra 5mm of offset from the RPF's would be more beneficial over my Dekagrams.

^^I wish that you could try them first with the B8/Swift setup, since I have another set of Dekas with 225/45-16 A052s to go on them, and I am worried that they will rub even on the factory suspension. [wink]
