Rim Size need help !

Post  Bonjoe on Sat Dec 24, 2016 9:38 am

Hi:   Been all over the forum and the tire world and to mixed-up to fiqure this out.  I have a rear tire of 150/70/R17.Want to go to the DS

      and found a close match to use,  a 205/50/R17.  But my current rim width is 4.25 inches and all I can fnd in a ct is 5.5 to 7.5 width.

      Can my rim take a wider tire then the 150mm without becoming too distorted?

      Thank You.
