Well santa has been and gone so its time to order some rubber for my cookie cutters. I thought i was all sorted with what size to go for but now i,m not to sure.
I no everyone recomends 215/60/15 but i,m also reading i could use 195/65/15,s , the 215,s seem expensive and there seems to be more of available in 195,s.
So can anyone help me out here, anyone used both.. . . ,
cheers,
Dave

The big issue with the 15s is the lack of decent rubber available that doesn't cost the earth. This is why a lot of 944 owners change to 16s. Pretty sure the 205 is the correct width.

Well i have gone for 205/60/15,s. The new pirelli p1 cinturato, £280 fitted, balanced and valves, dont think that was bad. . . . .
Now the next hurdle, nuts !, well wheel nuts, do i use the oh so expensive alloy ones in black( the wheels are finished in that chrome look silver ),
or use standard steel nuts and black caps. . . . . . . bugger. . . . :lol: ,
