Tyres for BStars
« on: 23 September 2018, 15:10 »
Hi posted this before but no response so will try again. Any BStar RA owners out there? What tyres are you running out there? Tyres I have just removed are 205/45r16's. These look like they are stretched as they sit flush with rims. I am guessing 220r16 or 225r16. Just had the wheels repainted so am looking at protecting the rims.
Thanks Richard

205/45/16 would be the 'right' tyres. Look for tyres with a rim protector edge, I have a set of Falken's, 205 wide on a 8" rim and the rim protector is still slightly wider, offering something even though they are ever a little bit stretched.
