Finally bought 225/60 R15's. Rolling circumfrance is exactly the same as 205/65 15. Initially, they looked a tad to wide for the rims, but now it's kind of growing on me. Will post pictures as soon as the weather improves.
I have this size Continental Extreme Contact, and they are pretty darn fun. Never can spin them on dry pavement, stop on a dime, but seem to roll a little on hard cornering. I was wondering if this is because they do seem a bit bulging and wide on these stock rims. What do you think?
Actually mine feel great. I used to have the air in at 26 front 27 rear just to get any comfort level in (215-65R15). Now with wider tires, and a smaller sidewall, I got them pumped to 32 front 34 rear and it feels super. I think my old tires were trash and I had 30,000 hard miles on it. Once, I get bored of the speed, I will probably take it back to 26F 27R.
