    dont get the ziex!!!!!:mad: they suck! i have the same ones you want. i got the 45's instead os the 55's though. they have horrible traction and suck in the rain when it comes to fast corners,uphill takeoffs.I would get the azenis. or..........................

    the g-force kd series from BF goodrinch. The kdw are all wheather and are designed for rain in mind. The kd is more of a dry whether tire. I never had problems with it in the rain though. but man it was a great sticky tire. It also turned corners like a dream. I tried to break traction. thats what i'm getting as soon as i wear these ziex out. I'll sell'em to you if you want. they are 195-45-15. if you plan on racing i wouldnt get these tires

    I'm going to go for 205/50/15's. I really like those bfg's g- Force T KDW's. And the Kumho Ecsta AST.


    I like the look of the 205/50's like on this car.

    Go with 205/50/15's. Running a staggered setup is used to promote rotation on the track and is worthless on the street because you can't rotate your tires.
    What's your budget? Ever get on a track? Use the car for commuting only?

    i have the rt615 falken and they are the best thing i did to my car over: omni coilovers, ST swaybars, energy suspension, subframe braces, lower contoll arms and so on basicly you get the point that tires is the best thing to do to your car and the falken rt615's are top notch

    LMAO

    Get 205/50/15s.

    That'll be my next tire size. The 195/55/15s I have do the job, but I want to try something slightly wider.
