It's time for some new tires, I have phone dials 15x6. Stock size is 195 65 15...from snooping around it seems 205 60 15 would fit fine..what about 205 50 15? Anyone ever ran these sizes?

Thank You!

205 50 15 are relatively small diameter. Due to gearing they feel noticeable faster acceleration wise, (and more responsive turn in) but for highway use it can get annoying with even more rpms at cruise. It depends on how you use the car. 205 is a bit on the wide side for a 6inch wheel, depends on tyre model.

Thx...

At the moment not sure what I will do with the car, but if it stays with me it will definitively hit the track...I know it would be best to get some 15x7, but I do have (6) 15x6 wheels...

Thx again.
