An offset of 40 [(+/-) 2 ] will be safe enough.

Why dont u go for 205/50-15 ? It would be the safest option in 15"....
Also Vid has given u all the options available with its pros n cons...

Don't want to go below 55 profile. Ride quality will be really poor on bad roads.

Though I will be upgrading my suspension setup, probably to Pedders, to account for this...

Guys,

Just got back after a ride with 4 people at the rear and 3. With 3 it was just about ok. but on bad roads and small ditches the tyre scrapes. I would suggest to stick with 50 and not 55.

Dunno which one I have. Ask ricky63. Maybe he knows. He's got the same as mine (League LG203, 6.5" wide).

that's very weird. 35mm is more towards the suspension than protruding out. so if at all it should touch the suspension not the body.

Forgot to mention that I have a 60kg capacity LPG tang in the boot which adds to weight. Could that be that little reason for the rubbing?

I think that is the reason, when three are seated its four for the car with the tank so load is there.

I have 215/45R17 they do scrape if there are 4 or more . load. But it looks cool though. I am actually planning to put 205/50R17 which will give me a little more cushion.
