    195/50/s or 205/50 15's.

    I got some NICE 195/50/15 Bridgestone Potenza S-03's for 340 shipped for four from Tirerack. I HIGHLY recommend picking up this tire at such a great price.

    you dont want to go to wide with the tires... yeah the contact patch will be bigger but you will lose lateral rigidity in the sidewall and your cornering will suffer ... unless its for a drag aplication then who gives a f**k about lateral rigidity...
    generaly go for a sidewall configuration that looks like this |__|
    too wide and you get this /__\ then the side wall will be sloppy
    too thin and you get this \__/ looks *BLING* y0 but doesnt protect your rims at all

    cool deal- those tires i hear are decent... kinda like KUM HOES :)

    cheap tire, kinda sucky, but still not bad
    ( in comparison to beter tires that cost more)
