175/45/15 or 185/45/15

Postby TheVdubFire » April 2nd, 2015, 6:24 pm

Hi there, I was just wondering which tire shops in Calgary would carry tires in 175/45/15 or 185/45/15 sizes. Need to buy a full set, and already have encountered shops not carrying them (Fountain Tire, Poorboy tire, etc). I'm hoping to fit them on 15x7 rims, was wondering if anyone ran that before. Hoping to get some tire stretch but don't want to lose too much on driveability since its going on my daily ;)

A pic of what they could look like:

Honestly the 185s are tough to find. The only place I've seen em is on (front tunershop) eBay and that's where I got mine. 195/45 would probably be cheaper/easier to find and will look good on a 7.
