    Couldn't find that size on the trusty old www.tyrestretch.com, but they do show a 195/45-13 on a 13x8.5. Should be fairly close to the look of your set-up...

    Yeah--too much. Leave that to the VW guys.

    First pic looks perfect, IMHO.

    Steering response is good , less flex on the tire wall.

    Can someone please explain any REAL benefit to tire stretching other than trying to clear your fenders on a lowered car? It seems to me that any advantages of running such a wide wheel are negated by running a small tire (because the contact patch is what matters). I would think that hard cornering would also increase the risk of the bead coming undone and causing rim damage or a crash. I'd like to hear both sides....advantages vs disadvantages. Thank you.

    Typically it's either that, or "style" reasons.

    Not what matters to everyone. 8)

    On extreme stretches (as above), that is possible. On mild stretches, not really a possibility.

    Really, the tire popping off the bead only happens when you drive them hard whilst under-inflated. :wink:



    This will be the 40th time I've said this on this forum: If you're looking for the logical justifications for tire stretching, you're not going to find it. Just roll your eyes and move on. :P
