205 x 60 or 245 x 50???

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Ok, so i have decided to  big wing my mk1. Also decided on 7.5 x 13 RS deep dish 4 spokes. 

So that leaves tyre choice. The obvious old school being a Yokohama 205 x 60. Well it was in my day. But i want to thrash it. Its what the cars made for. And want plenty rubber on the road. 

I was looking at other options, and saw Avon do a 245 x 50. 

Any ideas of this guys and does anyone have any photos of a mk1 wearing this option. 

So this is where i am trying to ballance looks and function. Too low a profile may be functional, but may make the car look stupid.

A bit of a conundrum here. 

Help and opinions gladly appreciated.

They look good. What brand did you get.

245 is quite a wide tyre for a 7.5J rim but in terms of the profile size, the two tyres are almost identical height. 50% of 245 is only 0.5mm less than 60% of 205.

Are they 6" wheels?
