they biggest you could go it 235 but not that common as the 225
255's fit 8" rims thats the max for them too!
stick with 225/16 or as i have traction issues i went 17x8 with 255 plenty of room under the rear guard and grippy too!
good thing a have stacks of tyres spare, i may even sell some if people in need of em?
with all the trouble you went to with the machining etc u could have had bought a set of wheels/tyres for probly the same price and have looks to go with it!
good luck there mate!

Ive got traction issues too on my VT with the 255 tyres, I can easily break traction under half throttle :)

Trust me its not the tyres as I have Good Year Revspecs, Excellence and Kumho KU-31
(two sets of 17x8 wheels and tyres)

you paid $400 bucks? i could of sold you my 16" VE's with rubber on them machined out for $300.

you can machine them out yourself to. all you need is die-grinder and air compressor.

well theres some picture proof that they fit. yes, the person who owns that car has a bit of camber, otherwise they might not fit, and yes, they scrub occasionally.

Any tyre fitter that gets caught stetching tyres that rnt ment 4 the rim can get sued and fined a hefty fine. Also voids any warrenties and insurance claims.
