Your arms are good for 195 only. A little bit training with fishing swordfish like Spencer Tracy and perhaps you then can take 205 Pete -haha-

Thomas, I have been practising f-f

thought I would pipe up on this thread because the wheels originally posted are the ones I have. Mine are lenso BSX BBS RS reps. They're sold as various different names, all made in the same factory I imagine. I have 15x8 and I think et20. 8 is definitely not too wide as others seem to be trying to say, these fit nice and flush and have clearance on a lowered car too. I have 195/45/15.

Surprising how much better the steering feels with the 195s
Looks good. Been looking for the same wheels but can't find yet a good deal.
