What size tyres for banded steels!??

What size, make, design, pressure? Who can stretch tyres? Tuck, rake, poke. Coilovers, roll (sway) bars, strut braces (tie bars), air-ride, hydraulics, camber plates/spherical bearings?

Hi all,

I need some help, i have a mk2 golf vr6 and recently had some 15" steels banded, fronts to 7.5" and rears to 8.5". I want a little stretch but nothing ridiculous as i want some tyre touching the road for traction lol. any suggestions on tyre sizes?

Cheers peeps

195/45/15 on the front or even 185/45/15

on the rears you could do 195/45/15 or 195/50/15
