    I would go with 215's as my 225's Michelin Pilot Sports catch every now & then. My old 225's (different brand were fine). Mine's lowered about 50-60mm on coilovers.

    Depends on what wheels you are getting, you want 8.5s if you want to run stretch.

    That's the standard size for an 8J. The ofset (which you seem to have ignored?) is the important thing when picking tyres if you are lowering!
