Re: changing from one tire size to another (timshier)

Quote, originally posted by timshier »
My last message wasn't clear. I am thinking of changing from 195-65-15 tires to 205-60-15 , keeping the same 7j x 15" wheels. Has anyone any experience of the difference in road feel or handling or speed or ride quality? Also are wider tires just as good in the wet?

Wet performance will totally depend on the tread pattern/compound you buy in the tires. Middle of the road all season tires may have a tendency to hydro plane more with tread width increase. I went to a ZR rated tire on my changeup and wet road performance was much better.
