need some tyre selection help

poor alignment has just worn out my front right and a little of the front left tyres on the inside edges almost down to the canvas so now i need to get a new set of tyres.

I have some 8 in 12 slot rims 14in dia and originally had some eager 225s on them but not sure what to get next. should i just go for another set of eagers or go for some new wheels while i am at it. dont want to spend heaps tho. also how can you work out what the biggest tyre you can select for an 8 in rim?

Re: need some tyre selection help

Well, I am running 275/50/15's on my 15X8" rims with no problems if that helps!

Tyers are a complicated choice, I like BF Goodridge all round, but that is just my opinion.
