Looking to trade 2 Genius Darwin Black 17 x 6 rims with TPMS for 2 15 x 6 or 6.5 Genius Darwin Black rims.

I would like to stagger my tire set up and run 205/50 15 tires up front and 215/40 17 tires in the rear. So if any one is interested choice of tires would be either 205/20 17 Hankook Ventus V2 with about 4,000 miles or 195/40 Yokohama X drives fair condition with about 20,000 + miles.

dolphinfriendly........ is this your car? If so its Hot. It deserves that spoiler. Its a twcom exclusive. I'm selective about who gets one.

Yep that's Marcie, thanks for the comments, she's a fiesty wee thing. She also now has colour coded b pillar covers and hopefully a modest bodykit to be fitted soon.

What size tires and rims do you have on the car? I just ordered 17x 6.5 rims and I’m not sure if I should get 205/40/17 or 215/35/17 thanks
I actually had 17 x 6 wheels all around. with 195/40 17 yokohama s-drives all around was a fantastic set up. The s-drives sit very square and sat wider than most 195's, they are a discontinued item. The rear were replaced with 205/40 17 Hankook ventus 2 tires. The 205/40 17 left a lot of rear wheel well room on stock suspension. For pure handling I would hunt down another set of new s- drives some where. But I want more side wall for comfort and less rim bending. So I have sold the 17 x 6 wheel and tire set.

While I experiment with size I will go with the Achilles tire brand. I intend to run 215/45 17 Achilles ATR Sport or ATR Sport 2 tires on rear 17 x 7.5 Genius Darwin rims. Up front 195/55 15 Achilles ATR Sport or ATR Sport 2 tires on 15 x 6.5 Genius Darwin rims. That will be what I run Smartball with in May 2021, if all lines up well.

Thanks! I decided to get go with the 205/40/17 hankook the 215teens only had the hankook and they were almost $300 more. I’m also lowering it a little with Ibach springs so I hope the set up will look good
