Click here for hoosier tires in a 225/45/17 this is what size street tire i run, and im have my turbo installed in a month. why would you go with these tires instead of converting to a 15" wheel.

And what would you need to convert to a 15" wheel other than a 15" wheel.

sorry but what does 5.5 inch backspacing mean
the distance from where the lugs on the wheel are (where they mount), to the back end of the wheel where it drops off..so basically the inner width of the wheel

yes offeset, but backspacing is easier to understand..as more people are more familiar with inches compared to mm. Also offest is used with regular wheels and backspacing is used with drag wheels,etc.
