just fyi, stretched tires and wheel "lip" size wont mean shit unless the wheels have the proper offset and the car is dropped with the fenders rolled/pulled/shaved.

I'd recommend only stretching as much as you need to in terms of clearance between your fenders or suspension. On that size, go with something along the lines of a 215/40, 235/35 or 235/40.

well with those sizes you dont need to strech. it will look stupid if your streching but completly tucking the wheels.. but with that set up i would run a 225 up front and a 255 in the rear. thats little to no strech but no point of running a smaller tire if you dont need to tirestrech.com

What are your wheel widths and offsets front and back? And your current tire sizes?
