    I can see your point, my point really is that on the original rim 195s just bulge out a lot from the rim edge so don't look great and don't offer any great advantage over 185/65

    I've always found that the better steering response of a slightly narrower tire more than makes up for the additional grip of a slightly wider one.

    I have been using Yokohama P215 60/R14 tires for several years ... no problems at all and a good feeling when driving ...
