Looking for pictures of 225/50/16's on RS 6 spokes on a wrx. Bugeye specifically, but it doesn't really matter I just would like to see what it'll look like.

Hope they're decently stiff tires. Some all seasons feel pretty crappy with that setup.

Bad pics, but you get the idea...

I know what the wheels look like on a wrx. I'm looking for the tire size specifically.

The first two pics aren't enough? How many pics of a 225 on RS wheels do you need to see?

I know 225 on a WRX 6.5" looks good squished on there.

With the wheels being an extra 50mm (aka, 12.7mm wider), they would just about pick up the extra wideness of the tire.

Basically what I'm saying is they would look very similar to 215 on WRX 6.5" wheels. AKA, they'll look fine.

Here are 225/50/16 Dunlop Star Specs on a 16x7 wide wheel. I originally had them mounted on my stock RS wheels but the offset was wrong and spacers wouldn't fix it..so I just bought new wheels. The Star Spec has a widerthanadvertised rep, so I'm sure that if these fit and look decent, any tire will.
