if you could find a 7.5" wide wheel would be best for a 225, but a 7" is still doable, just bump up the tire pressures a little bit to aid some of the side wall (say 36 psi front, 34 rear) and adjust accordingly to your driving style per every 2psi increments. If you want more of a firm ride, raise to 38 psi front, 36 psi rear. If the back end is too loose, let out some air and run 34 psi in the rear. If you want to be tail happy, run 38 in the rear.


You'll first notice that it takes less effort to turn the steering wheel at speed (less rotational mass). The car will feel more alive. Eventually, you'll get use to it. Your speedo will be off by 2% (no big deal, it's only 1.5 mph of a difference at 60 mph real speed).
