225, but i think thats with a bit of bulge. I dont think you want that much traction anyways though... better off with 215s.. it will give a better ride. On low profile tires, if the tires slant inward towards the ground from the wheel, it makes a incredibly stiff sidewall. Thats why m3s have thinner tires than the wheel, to get that inward slant.
