Wider 15" tires

Post by Lobster »

I currently have a 2002 Miata LS . I am running 205/50-15 and 225/50-15 s. I would like to go to a wider 15" tire. Does anyone make such a tire. If so who and where can I buy them. Thanks :shock:

Width of a 225/50x15 is also dependent on what brand of tire you are running. For instance, a BFG Rival in 225/45x15 has an 8.5" tread width which is one of the wider specs for that size. Check specific brands of tire to see what puts the most tread on the ground for that size.
