It all started back in the early '70s, when people started making child safe toys. When I was a kid, if someone was stupid enough to bite a wheel off a toy car, and choked to death on it, it helped keep the gene pool at a higher standard.
Now those type of idiots grow up and breed.........

If the car is too low either way I guess I could also space out the strut mounting point a bit with washers ( id rather not rig shit, but what the hell) or some shit to get the car up higher.
Tire wise I was looking at the Yokohama s drives they seem to be rated the best for the price for street driving.

This isn't completely relevant, but I feel the tire sizes we use are similar and you might benefit from my review.
on my 15x 10 I've had a couple different sets of tires.
One set was toyo proxes r1r pretty low tread wear rating, pretty soft tire, gripped incredible I ran 195 50 15 up front and a 225 45 15 out back.
They had a unique stretched look, I think because of the soft sidewall, Seemed to have no end to performance in the canyons, shitty 5m could not over power them ever.
Old pictures: of toyo front 195 50 15 on volk te37v 15x10 -25
Fronts wore out, replaced with falken azenis 615k they just changed the formula from the old 615k and I have to say perform very well. Not as low tread wear rating, much stiffer sidewall, gave a nice desired look on the wheel with stretch. I'd say the front of the car is much more responsive, how ever I did loose some grip, they still really grab the road and fight for traction, but maybe with my confidence in driving going up I do find them to be a little slippery at times which can get kind of scary when you start pushing it. These were cheaper even than the 195 of the other tire. Both awesome tires, but since I daily I'd probably go with the azenis since cheaper and last longer, plus I really value responsiveness.
now with azenis 205 50 15 on same rim
sorry there aren't more haven't taken pics while car not running

I'm using some 205/50/r15's for my 15x8's and I have not had any issues. I have not cared to check how much my speedo is off though. My wagon had some monster truck 75 sidewall tires on it when I bought it so that was a pretty huge difference.

When I had 15s I was running 205/55/15s and 225/50/15s. Both are within 3.5% from stock. 205/50/15 is more than 7% off.
I was also kind of surprised that once I put a proper rolling diameter wheel/tire combo on in 17s, and lowered the car more it still bottomed out less.
Moral of the story... 15s are wack. There aren't many tire sizes that have a lot of width, running undersized tires is for asians,mexicans and VW douches, to get rid of the wheel gap you have to risk taking your oil pan off by going really low, etc etc.
Go bigger. You'll thank yourself.

^^225/50/15^^old school BF goodrich on 15x10j wheel
I will be running 195/45/15 this summer because I want to be a halfbreed asian mexican vw fanboi.
take off the oil cap, then shit into the valvetrain. if you are like most 7m owners, the semen content will act as a sealant and prevent your hg from blowing for the next 100 miles or so. repeat as necessary.
