i would try running a 195/60/15 which you should be able to find tons of then around .they should give you a lower stance and better handling in the corners

tire rack has PLENTY of high performance 205/50-15 tires avalible. It will onyl throw your speedo off i mph at 60...you will actually be going 61.5 or so.

I wish I could find 205/40-15....and id be all over the 6 lug or 5 lug conversion...or 15" pug rims.

ok so i got my pugs and i want some 205/50/15's,

i would run a 55 or 60 series tire but it is actually taller then the stock tire size with a 13 and 70 side wall.

and with the 50 its really no difference.

and anything lower then a 50 you can risk bendin your rims on a large bump.

Even with 50s you risk bending a rim

I ran 50s on a car for a short while.. hit a hole, broke a rim.. city paid for it.. I said screw it and got 45's.. drove on them for a long time with no problems.
