Default what's the widest tire i can fit on leggy wagon stock wheels

comes with 205.50 17



i want 215 or 225. but i also want them to be the same aspect ratio... i guess it would be 45 0r 40 respectfully? but i have no expirience with wagons. i hear they rub alot easier than sedan.

i'll prob go with 215 due to price...but just checking.

thanks guys.

What year Leggy? What width wheels?
If 205 is stock I would assume 6.5 so a 215 would fit as would a 225 but would be getting towards pinchage a little but no prob. 215 or 225/45 would work.

Your wheels are 17x7. You could do a 215 or 225.. the 225 will be kind of buldged.

a smidgin bulged is not really a concern. the woman could use the "drive through curbage" protection.

leggy is 06 wagon non gt

I like the curbage protection idea. With all the parallel parking @ south beach, my better half could use a little fudge factor.
