    I just got a set of ls mesh rims that need tires. i think the stock size tire for those is 195/55/r15. right now there is 205/50/r15. the tires seem to have a larger diameter then the ones on my civic coupe right now. not by much but a little. what tire size should i put on. i found a set of cheap 205/60/r15 but would that just be too big for my car?

    I would go with the 205s. I had those on my gsrs with Falken Azenis without any problems. They rubbed slighty on my Civic but only at full lock. Too bad you can't run 275s 12" wide.
