one question, my stock rim is 6jj can i fit it with 205 series tires ? stock tires was 195/50/16 but as you guys know there's only little choices for 195/50/16 tires. if can then it will be great. i can fit the stock rim with normal tires for daily driven and the sport rim with UHP tires keep for track day only. :D daily drive with Toyo R1R wallet tak boleh tahan wor

It depends on what aspect ratio tyres you will be using.
If 205/45R16 then better 6.5J minimum
If 205/50R16 then 6J can be used

Anyone knows the smallest tyre size that can fit on a 9JJ 15in rim?

Planning to buy the bananas rims for my beetle...

Will cost me around RM1,600 for 4 rims as is where is, cash & carry...

It supposed to be brand new & imported.

225/40/18 on 9.5JJ will be stretch with difference about 0.3JJ...lol. So, its may acceptable but any stretch setup is not recommended for touge though.
235/40/18 looks very standard on 9.5JJ. I used to ride on that setup before.

Actually max for 225/40R18 is 9J but stretched probably 9.5J still can, but better is 235/40R18 which is max 9.5J, but then diameter is bigger for 235/40R18. What is your original tyre size?

9.5' wide should use 255-265 tire la, that's the proper way. Don't play stretch la, pity the tires and the rims, and your comfort also will reduce. Nothing good come out of stretching, even the look is silly IMHO but that's just my personal taste.

Then the rims should be much smaller la. It's like a small kid wants to use NBA player shoes, doesn't make sense, does it? This stretch style is actually a very old style anyway, Indonesian youngsters already did this way back in the early 80's. :D
