I've prepped my 1988 CRX Si to run STS this season and am wondering about what the fastest setup for tires is this year?

I'm running 15x7.5" wheels ET40 offset. I'm going back and forth between 205's and 225's... I feel like the amount of space between the 205's that are currently on the car and my rear trailing arms is fairly small. Will 225's rub in the rear?

The real contenders would seem to be:

-RT660 in 205/45R15
-A052 in 205/50R15
-RT660 in 225/45R15
-A052 in 225/50R15

Use the A052 in 205/5015. These tires run wide and will be almost as wide as a 225/45, plus the tire is quite a bit lighter. the 225/50 is just too tall. the 205's work well on a 7.5" rim.

What shocks are you using?

I may sell my Whitener Shocks/springs I used on my car.

I'm running RPF1's 15x7 +41 wheel with a 205 R888R and DA trailing arms, my rear tire is really close to the body but has never touched even under high speed cornering. Toyo's run a bit wide and I'm more than happy with the setup.
