tires too wide?

I have an '88 crx and i need the widest footprint possible. I need maximum friction so i can lose all my gas mileage and hopes of a top speed. Plus, a whole bunch of rubber strapped on my wheels will weigh them down quite a bit. that said, i am almost positive i can fit 225/50/r15 's on my car. BUT, what do i have to do to accomplish it? Wheel spacers? Roll fenders? Modify fenders? Modify wheel well plastic? I need help or ideas before i go rip up my daily driver. P.S. the amount of money i spend IS a factor. :2cents:

The first part of your question didn't sound for real. And plus that tire size will throw off your speedo and odometer and make your car accelerate like a slug.

225/50/R15's for an 88 CRX is too big. You can barely fit 215's in an 01+ Civic (But possible according to some tire companies) and the 01+ Civics have bigger wheels than the CRX.

You can fit 225 wide tires but you will need spacers. Plenty of us run that size for autocross.
