I am buying a set of Montegi 18x7.5 rims. I wanted to know what the tire sizes I can run without rubbing on a S14. Also what are your tire recomendation. I was told 225 to 245 should fit. I wanted a tires with good ride and a thin sidewall but not to thin.

What offset? You won't be able to get a good answer without that.

Ordered my Falken Azenis RS's 2 days ago. 215/45/16's. Since they run wide I had to go with 215's

I think anything higher than +42 and you'll have problems...and most the Motegis are for FWD's, meaning they a high offset.

The stock offset for an S14 is +40 on a 6.5inch wide wheel, so going an inch wider places the inner lip of the rim a half inch closer to the strut already...add in more offset and you'll be rubbing.

I'd look for something with a +32 or so...it wil fit the fender more flush anyway.
