I just change my rims to 225/17/50 profile for my 17" OZ Leggera HLT 8J, is this the correct size? I wanted 215 width but Auto Kinetic says 225 is "Fuller" look. Don't quite understand. Any expert advice please? Thanks!

Your 8J rims basically are 8 x 2.54 = 20.3cm wide

 

You can fit 215 (21.5cm wide) tyres but 225 means the rubber bulge out a bit more to cover the edges of the rim so when you kerb the rims, the rubber hits the curb before the metal.

 

Fuller look just means fatter tyre I assume. Some people like the tyre stretched so that the rim is wider than the tyre but its all a personal pref as far as looks go.

You could BUT with an 8J rim, 215 is a bit small (e.g. you get a bit less kerb rash protection). Basically you bought a pretty fat rim for I assume an Axela/Maz3.

 

There are some generally accepted rim widths for any given tyre width. There is some leeway but Auto Kinetics is not wrong suggesting 225 for an 8J rim. Basically tyre companies would also recommend a minimum 225 tyre for a 8J rim.

 

You can use this site to calculate. 

 

http://www.tyresizec...size-calculator

 

Recommended Rim Sizes
for Tyre Size: 225/50 R 17 From 6.00" x 17" To 8.00" x 17" Measuring Rim
Width 7.00" Standard
Rim Size 7.00" x 17"

 

 

Recommended Rim Sizes
for Tyre Size: 215/50 R 17 From 6.00" x 17" To 7.50" x 17" Measuring Rim
Width 7.00" Standard
Rim Size 7.00" x 17"


Anyway, just enjoy your new rims lah. How much were they? Flow form or forged?

Yes because heavier and also rolling radius bigger. But really the difference is so small that I don't think your butt dyno can tell.

 

You want fatty 8J rim is like this lor. Was there a 17 x7.5J rim of the same model available?

Did you also check the offset of the rims? If too aggressive (e.g. too low) is not good. Maz3 stock should be ET+50

 

Don't worry about the 215 vs 225 lah. It is really negligible. I assume 215 is stock size for your car?

You are fine. 5mm diff is safe.

 

Your tyres are still within fender right? Not sticking out of wheel arch? (since your tyre now approx. +5mm + (1.5*25.4)/2mm closer to outside)

What is the conditions when u say "turning full lock no rubbing"? Cos hard cornering or with heavy load the car will dip down further and hence more likely to hit than if just normal turns. I once attempted to increase the diameter of my tyres by using next higher side size profile (eveything else same). But changed mind in the tyre shop when the wheel was removed and we saw there is sign of a rubbing patch internal of the wheel wheel size of 50c coin. This means the tyre had already been rubbing the plastic from daily drives even though i had felt nothing. My car not mazda3 and is lowered btw.

 

For your case since you had already changed and no issues observed just carry on and observe.
