    I absolutely love my 02 zx2, and I have 15x8s wrapped in a 215/60. As anyone would have guessed they run and was wondering if a 205/50 would be too small for my 8" wide wheel

    205mm=8.07 inches

    Nope.

    No rubbing issues? Is the car lowered at all?

    No the car is stock ride height I would post pictures but I'm having trouble up loading them. It's not the width I'm having issues with. It's the would height.I love to get a 215/50 but they are few and far between and outrageously pricey

    I did roll my wheel wells i i w thinking of going a little further and doing a slight flair but not too much to be very noticeable but enough I can lower it

    I lowered my wagon with a set of Ground Control Coilovers. I'm running a 7.5" x 17" wheel with +40mm backspace. 205/45/17 tire. Rolled the fenders. No rubbing.
