i have acquired some 15x6 OB 6 spoke wheels and want new tires. not sure what to get though.
the choices are:
195/60/15 yokohama avs es 100
205/55/15 kumho ecsta supra 712
1.will the 205/55 fit the car?
2.how much grip will the 195/60 give up to the 205/55?
3a.will the 205/55 fit well on a 6" wheel?
3b.or will the sidewall roll over too much in hard cornering and risk popping the bead off?
price doesn matter since they are both nearly the same price. i will not get the yoko in the 205/55 though cuz it cost 30 dollars more than the 195/60. and the kuhmo isnt available in the 195/60.
any help would be cool, thanks in advance!

reviews in grassroots motorsports give the kuhmo better levels of grip and the yoko a better daily ride and a tire that is actually a good compromise between performance and ride quality.

The one set of low profile kumhos I'd ridden were "wobbly," like a thin sidewall feel. There again, that's only one set...

I really like the handling of the Yokohamas, even in an H rating, although the tire wears pretty quick. ( semi- aggressive driving, family car don't ya' know)
The Kuhmos are wearing well but the tires are smaller in the same size. ( 195/65's)
Two cents in your general direction.
