Wouldn't you want to go to 205-55-15? Keep the rolling diameter closer to normal? > would i have any problems doing this? is it not worth is? comments? Check out tirerack.com - they have sizing and interchange guides, and will list the specific tires that they suggest will work on your specific year & model of car. I'd stay within whatever the parameters they suggest are. Might be worth considering 16" rims if that's within your budget, gives you some more options. > i plan on getting bridgestone potenza 950RE's or Falken Ziex ZE-512. > any comments on these tires, or other suggestions. There are tire reviews there too... I prefer Nokians, which they don't sell, so I can't comment on the Bridgestones or Falkens. Dave Hinz
