yeah the 225 isa nice tyre although i reakon the 215 is a better fit. i think ull find that most ford 15" alloys are a 6.5" rims with the exception of a few that are 7" 205s will fit balance is needed and wheel alignment only if the tyres are wearing unevenly or are scalloping...

Yeah I was told by both Bob Jane and Bridgestone that 225's can fit but might "bagout" too much and could rolloff the rim in certain driving conditions and was advised to get 215/60 profiles as they would fit perfect on my 15x6.5 " rims.
SEE my Tag and link to webpage for better pics of these tyres and rims :D

well it does matter..
because what its an extra inch or 2 of depth..
thats all i can see, the wheel is all black..

(its not an alloy, just play steelies)

and i can call them s**t, caus i can guarentee, most people on here have a misconception about me, based on what, like 1 thing.

e.g twirkqurky (or what ever it f**k is)
took like a couple of weeks to gain the confidence to put in a snorkel..
when i did it in 5-10 mins... drunk..

haha so true - pot, this is kettle - kettle, meet pot! :lol:

edit: and its a lot more than just the fact you put a wheel on backwards - much of a thread in flaming was devoted to your 'smart' acts involving motor vehicles :wink:
