225/45-15 will "fit" with 15x8 +25 wheels. You can fully expect to roll, more likely flare the fenders. Disclaimer: This is a setup for grip, not aesthetics.

Hankook RS-3 is another popular option in that size, but you're not likely to find a set of 4 at $400. $500 is more reasonable.

I've posted this pic before, but it gives you an idea what to expect with exactly such a setup:

205/50-15 is the go-to size for 15x6.5 or 15x7 wheels on a CRX. They'll fit fine.

Are you planning on running the 225s in the rear then as well? Thats a whole lot of tire for such a small car, have you considered running a staggered setup?

ive thought about it but idk...Im a little concerned about running +15 setup on it but the guy ended up flaking on me Neways so guess it doesn't matter now...I have a hard time keeping the rear end under the car as it is so I think a 225 will be what I need really...May just end up running the 205 50s on my slips and saying screw it...if I don't like it I can always to up to a x8 and 225 next year

I run 215 45 15 on 15x7. Fits perfect, never rubbed once.

I'd recommend 205 45 15 with Sumitomo htr 2. Sexy looking tire and has insane traction wet or on the track
