I'm looking at a set of wheels and they are 15x8 et25 and I will be putting on the standard 205/60r15 size tires (for now) and I'm wondering if they will fit. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

I can also get them in 15x7 et25 and they would have the same size tires.

The offset would be pretty aggressive, but would probably work with a 205.

How low is the car?

Currently stock suspension.

I took a quick measurement and found that there is about 20mm or so between the edge of the wheel and the edge of the fender so the 15x8s are out (way too much poke, especially on stock suspension). The 15x7s, however seem like they will fit perfectly.

I'm running 8 inch wide wheels at et30. If I ran a 205 width tire, I think I could push it out another 5mm, maybe roll the fenders a touch.

Remember, the top of your wheel tucks in *a bit* as you lower the car. When I first bolted up those 18x8 et30's, I was for SURE they wouldn't clear the fenders as I let the lift down. But then they tucked it all flush-like, and everybody was ok.
