    Just wondering which size tires would be better with a 15x6.5 rim?

    205/50/15 or 195/50/15

    This is just for everyday driving. I'm trying to decide on which one I should get.
    Thanks for the help.

    wrong forum...but to answer your question...195/50's would be best. 205/50's really belong on a 15x7.

    :werd: to the 195/50/15

    pick up some Toyo T1-S rubber
    its the best stuff for that width if you changed to 15x7 wheel you would have WAY more choices

    ES100's come in 195/50/15's....
    Potenza S-03's come in that size too...
    Dunlop SP 5000's also...
    Bridgestone Potenza RE750
    Goodyear Eagle F1
    Dunlop SP Sport 9000...

    According to TireRack.com, lots of good tires come in that size. And that's JUST from tire rack. They don't carry Toyo, Nitto, or a few other excellent tire brands.

    What are you smokin? ;)

    :withstupid:

    also:
    the Toyo FZ4 comes in that size
    the Toyo Proxes 4 comes in that size


    the RA-1s are a competition tire and are WAY too soft for daily driving (youll get about 1000 miles on them tops)

    the Yokohama AVS sports and Parada spec-2s dont even come in a size for 15s... so those arent even worth mentioning in this discussion


    so ill say again ..... there are fuck loads of tires out there in the 195/50/15 size

    so the sacrifice in total sectional width is worth the even sidewall loading?

    just wondering cause i have 205's on my rota's and they haven't been bad, although they don't really grip (all season tires suck).

    looks like i didnt do that much of my homework

    i wouldnt get Potenzas, they chunk really bad, and dont grip for shit

    the ES100s are tight, havent fooled around with them much yet, they are a little loud but not bad compared to the azenis sport.

    i forgot to check, does advan make any rubber for 195/50/15????
