Tire size

Ok, my car is lowered 1.6 and 1.8 inches. I have stock 15 inch rims currently. What size tire should I get if I get a set or 16 inch rims. What tire size for 17 inch rims?

Try this tire size calculator. you can try all different sizes. Like differend widths and sidewall heights.
Tire size calculator

IMO
16= 215/50/16
17= 215/45/17
18= 225/40/18
19= 225/30/19
