lol, you disagree thejordan? My mk1 has 195's on an 8, which is a ratio of 96% tire to wheel coverage, 215 on 9.5 is a ratio of 89%, so 7% less rim coverage. Yes a lil lower than I want, but since I have yet to find reasonably priced wheels in our pcd that are 18x9 (94% ratio), which is what I really want, I'm looking at these unnamed wheels that are 18x9.5.

look up pics 18x9.5 with a 215, it isn't uncommon, 225/40 (93% t/w ratio) I suppose could be an option but that throws off potential tire-tucking ability, because these wheels already would have 5mm more offset than stock, and then the tire would be 5mm wider each direction from stock.

idk all still up in the air, still don't have the coilovers on, and probably wont until presidents day weekend...and i really think i might make the plywood wheel to get measurements from.

Too bad I'm not a baller, I live like only 45 minutes from ccw; It'd be sweet to have them just which me up a set of perfectly fitted wheels...
