Default Profile on 15x7 wheels? 55 or 50 series?

Hi guys,

Just got some new 15x7 Mugen rims.

My stock tire size for my EK is 195/55/r15

I want to fit 205's on these wheels. I just dont know whether I should go for the 55 or 50 profile?

Does anyone have pics of 205/55/r15 on an EK pls?

50 series is the right size for your car.

205/50/15 is the correct size for your EK. 205/55/15 is too big and will likely rub and throw your speedo off. Click the image to open in full size.

Use either 195/55-15 or 205/50-15. 205/55-15 is too big.
