What do you guys think i should get?

First ones have a lower profile...so i can lower her more.

But the second ones are fatter...and look meaner.

What are your opinions?

165x55 R13




175x55 R13

Thats alot of stretch on an 8j mate. . ive got some 165/50s on a 7 and they look horrible to me. Plus being 13s youll never get it low enough to have no arch gap.

conti 195/45s Thumbs up They wont look overly stretch, but then theyll fill the arch better and not have the huge archgap most mk1s have on 13s. Only my opinion ofcourse.
