Question 225/50/16 Victoracers on Rota Slipstreams?

I'm wondering if the 225/50/16 Kumho Victoracers will fit on the Rota Slipstreams. Isn't 225 too wide? That's what I have on my Volks but they're 7.5 inches wide. The Rota Slipstreams only come in 7" width, correct? I looked on Tirerack's website and I didn't see a 215 width available for the Victoracers. If the 225's won't fit, should I go with a different competition tire? Thanks.

They fit just fine. A lot of us run 225/50's on OEM 16x7" 1st gen RS wheels. Its a relatively inexpensive way to run R-compounds.

Yeah, I really don't care about the wheels as long as they're small. That way, with competition tires that wear out fast, it's cheaper to replace. Thanks for the help.

You're fine...I run 225/50/16 Victoracers on the stock WRX rims (16 x 6.5") all the time for track days. A 7 inch rim is even better. Go for it!
