I think you'd be happy with 195/60s, but it is probably possible
to go up a size (205/50s?)

Based on other recommendations I've seen, try either the Boge
Turbo Gas or Pro Gas, the Pros being stiffer. It's something
I'd like to do one day if I keep the car.

I haven't seen this yet (77k). WHAT is the deal with gas? I've
heard bad things about Shell, Mobil and many others. I like
Mobil for its pay at the pump convenience in most places, but I
try to get Amoco if it's on sale and/or I have time and/or can
find a station nearby. I've been trying Shell every now and
then too... As long as you avoid 'Julio's US Gas' I would
think you'd be fine [no ethnic slur intended!]
Anyone have some hard facts?
