7.5 still can. If 8jj, then need to change at least to 215, better 225.

no need la... can still use 205 with 8jj.

there are even people who use this setup for track.... if i get 8jj oso ill be running 205 n will be using it for track oso....

can check here for an example of 15x8 n tire fitments

http://949racing.com/15x8-6ul-black.aspx

by the way....where to find 15*7.5?? got ah? wats the offset?

if can find 15*8 +35 would be damn nice...but all the 15*8 taiwan rims here come with stupid offsets :(

Well 8 inch rims means it's already 20.32 cm wide not including the rim's lip thickness which normally would add around 1cm. So total width can be >21cm already which means if use 215 is just about even. If use 205 of course can still install but it will already stretch/donuting a bit and rim lip protection is almost none. I know those hellaflush people even use much narrower tires but again those are not recommended. :)

Well pix can be deceiving and one's perception of the term 'stretch' can also be different, but the calculation is a sure thing already as a validation. :)

I'm driving Toyota Mark X 250G. Not sure about tire recommendation, maybe can try GT Champiro HPY, there's already a good review done by VR2 (one of ZTH active forumers), and he said it's very good value for money. I myself is now using 17' Goodyear Eagle F1-D5 which is quite good but a bit noisy. My first choice at the time was actually Yokohama Advan Sport but turns out a bit more expensive.
