    Tire size calculator

    the 205 will be 10mm wider

    stock tire: 195/60/14
    sidewall : 4.6in
    radius: 11.6in
    diameter: 23.2in
    circumference: 72.9in
    revs/mile: 869.0

    new tire: 205/50/14
    sidewall: 4.0in
    radius: 11.0in
    diameter: 22.1in
    circumference: 69.3in
    revs/mile: 914.0


    those measurements are approximations... but should give you a pretty close idea to what you will be dealing with

    Then you start going from company to company and realize that company A's 205/50/14 is 3/8ths of an inch taller than company B's 205/50/14. Although neither will admit it.

    195/60 on a 14 is what you want to run

    seriously dont bother with drag radials
    they suck
    if you daily drive them you are going to eat through them stupid fast
    and they dont have the grip that a real drag slick is going to give you at the track

    basically its the worst features of both tires combined

    get a set of street tires then get a set of dedicated track tires
    it will cost you less in the end
