I am looking for Pictures of people running 225/50/17 tires on Stock struts with swifts.

I have only been able to hunt down 2 pictures. But they were 04 models. 06-08 would be even better! I am sure there are way more people with this setup. I want to make sure this is the amount of wheel gap I want before I make the dive.

So far my 04 BBS goldies are going to be here Weds! I have my tire picked out
Yokohama S drives. Just want to make sure this is the setup I want. I of course will have to get swifts too.

Thank you in advance!

Falken 912's don't have a very wide tread, my Dunlop 215/55/17's are wider and squarer sidewall.

Yo.. I have 215 55 17 on mine now. I know that's not what you are looking for but it will give you an idea what those like on Swifts. I will get 225 50 17's next.... they look good. I also wouldn't mind going wider... 225-245... I am diggin the 245+ club thread. :)

When I was looking at larger tires I plugged different numbers into a circumference calculator. This one for example: Tire Dimensions Made Simple - Discount Tire
I ended up going with 235/50/17 (coming from 215/60/16 on an 05) as it was the closest to keeping the same speedometer reading. Even as it is I'm reading a couple of miles high.
