Pic Request: 205/50 and 225/50 on 16"

I'm looking for a side profile photo of your 205/50/16 and 225/50/16 tire sizes on car. Fuchs or other wheels, doesn't matter.

Thank you.

Nice!

Does anyone have pics of cars with the same sizes but in 15" wheels? (205/50-15 & 225/50-15)

Has lowered it slightly in the rear since.

Edit; Oh, sorry, my fronts are 205/55*16 not 50. 55 gives you the same sidewall front and rear, which was what I wanted.

Really like how the 50s corner, but you will need to get your speedometer recalibrated not just for accurate speed readings but for correct mileage.

Really?

Doesn't the tach run off a reading from the transmission?

All of these are 205/55/16 front....

Iam looking for 205/50/16. I'm pushing an aggressive offset, and thinking the shorter tire will help.

Cool. I'm interested in this setup too. How do you find it? Do you mind sharing pictures with more light on the wheel/tire to better appreciate how the tire sits?

Yes, the speedo and the odometer run off of the reading from the transmission, but the tire is outside of the transmission, so if you change the height of the tire, that changes how far the car travels during one revolution. The transmission sends eight alternating pulses to the speedometer per revolution regardless of the tire size.

205/50/16 on 6" Fuchs rims. Running Dunlop Direzza's in these photos. Sorry, no sitting pretty pics - all under load on the track and at AX (they're my track wheels) I normally run 205/60/15's on the street. The 50 profile's are too rough riding and noisy for street driving, as I also generally don't go over the speed limit in public.

Car is a stock narrow body '74 TargaS
