Tire sizes

I am working at a race shop that works on porsches and all kinds fast cars this summer and they constantly get take off hoosiers which i could mount for my car. I was wondering what are all of the sizes of tires i could fit on my car. I have 15" fuchs, and the car is going to be my '84 944 na. The red car spun a rod bearing and i am currently doing an engine swap so the yellow car is my autox toy.
tire sizes, anyone?

I would second the advice above. 205/55s might be worth a look, but optimally 225/50 is the way to go. SOME 245/45s will fit, but I don't think any R compounds.

aspect ratio. 205 (205mm wide) / 55 (55% of first number) / 15 (wheel size in inches)

(width of tire) / (sidewall height as a percentage of the width) / (Wheel diameter in inches)
