I wouldnt go wider than the 185's!

not a lot of choice for the mk1! revs look ok on the darker cars.

wide steels look good!, but finding em ??  :-/

why you want to try that wide a tyre? after your fun sorting the rubbing on the blue one??  ya nutter!! :)

205!? surely you'll have a job keeping traction in the wet at the back with that: given these cars are well known for their propensity to loose the back under under power through corners(been there done that :X). You'd also have to ensure the entire set-up(front A/R bar, new dampers/springs/bushes all round etc) would have to be very carefully selected and put together? :-/

After a recent high speed drive home on the highway I was very happy with my setup.

I did have to worry about huge Triumph swallowing puddles, but I never had any control or traction issues and trust me, I was move it :)

195/50-15 tires.
