Nope.  215/60 15 is the correct size (look at the inside of the fuel filler 
cover).  Alternately, you may (if you do a lot of highway driving) use 205/65 
 15 tires, which are geared more for comfort and are also pretty good if your 
putting snow tires on.  Speedo should be unaffected.  I bought my (used) '90 
v8q with these and they performed quite well.  But if you like to corner 
hard, stick with the 215/60 size.  Incidentally, 205/65 will give you 
slightly better gas mileage.


'91 200q20v with a few mods...
