    Hey guys, pretty new to the forum here but have a quick question for yall on some wheels and tires. I am looking at the magnum 500s from coker 15x7 with 4.25 backspacing. I'm just wondering the best tires size as far as width and aspect ration. I was thinking 215/65/15. Stocks tires are 215/70/14. I know ill.get some slight tire bulge putting a 8 inch on a 7 inch rim but I think there won't be any rubbing issues since the backspacing is .25 inch less than if I were to go with the 8 inch rim. Also going with the 65% aspect ration will help keep the speedo at the correct reading. Let me know whT your guys think or see any issues. Thanks guys and gals!
