    On the right is what i would consider an Astronomical Stretch, unreasonable on the left... just FYI
    They are still safe, but at some higher speeds it may be suggested to go to a more fitting tire.

    I have see 195's stretched onto 11.0" rims for cars that are just show cars and are not driven faster than 5 miles per hour

    Awesome! Will work on more of my reference guides today :)

    Are you aware of us not being able to copy over excel sheet? Like just basic graphs and tables? :(

    there isn't a table option out of the box. I can look at installing one though.

    I wouldn't consider 225 over sized on a 7" wheel. :D

    Old pic. Stock wheels with 225/45/17 tires.

    215 is proper fitment for 7" wide wheel. 225 is fine and safe, but is by no means a stretch haha!

    Anyways, yeh webby, maybe a simple table functionality? Makes things easier is. Threads like these :)

    Will post my bulb fitting referrence thread this week too haha. Keep forgetting. Can't do it from my celly haha

    my Rotiforms came with 215/35's and they are 18x9.5 thinking of putting at least 215/40's on them for this summer
