    http://www.whalentire.com/wheeldetail.cfm?...541040G&size=15

    so if you could direct me to the best lower profile tire for these rims, i'd appreciate it. all comment are welcome, i've decided for a smaller rim for a better stants and its better for autox, thanks :D

    how much are u looking to spend? and what do you mean by all around? comfort? grip? wet?
    Anyway, i like the kumho esctas because theyre relatively cheap and its been a favorite among many people. Or the dunlop sp series. also, i just got a set of yokohoma h4s and they ride really nice and has 60k warranty. i doubt its very grippy but at 60 bucks each it was better than oem michilens.

    There's no "best" tire- it all depends on what you want to do.

    The size you're going to want to use with the D series drivetrain is 195/50/15 (on a 6.5 inch wheel) or a 205/50/15 on a 7 inch wheel with a B series drivetrain.

    Just curious, what does the engine series have to do with the size of the tires, i would understand if i wanted to put a larger rim, most d series engines don't have the umph to turn over 17" and 18" rims and still maintain power where b series might.

    anyways, i'm looking for a tire that has grip and has good tire millage, that can handle the California roads. no to worries about wet, because i can always put my stock steelies back on for the rain, they have good yokahama all weather tires. mainly a summer tire. thanks

    I have the Kumho Ecstas and I hate them alot, I am purposely riding them into the ground just so I can get new tires probably the new Azenis.

    I have some falken ziex tires on my crx and no complaints. They were cheap and grip pretty good wet or dry. I've had them on for about 8 or 9 months and they still have plenty or tread.

    it's not the wheel size that matters (other than rotating mass), its the overall diameter of the tire.

    I have the ecsta 712s on my truck, they're definitely not ideal but it must be that they're wide enough and the truck is awd so... :shrug:

    bridgestone potenza RE750's. but they will cost more per tire than your rims. they have a higher tread wear than all the tires mentioned previously, and still perform well in wet and dry conditions. i have been reading alot about those... i'm highly considering them when i get the wheels for the s2000.

    Azenis are good tires, and the Kumho Ecsta MXs are fucking great tires. I am curious the people who are complaining about the Ecsta tires are they the MX's? As I have run both the Azenis and the MX, and when it comes to bang for the buck the MX is a damn good tire. I am curious to see how the new Azenis hold up.
