Yea, seems there is not a lot of choices in the OEM size.
I'm not excited about going to the 225/60-15 because of the taller
sidewall.....and I'm not prepared to spend the cash on a set of wheels.
Looks like it's back to the XGTV or try the Yoko ES100. Hmmm.
Thanks for the input guys,

Just did a quick pass through Tire Rack and Discount Tire. The only
choices for a true Ultra High or Max performance summer tire in the
stock size it the Yoko. I've heard consistently good remarks about
them, but have no first-hand experience.
Another option would be to go up to 225/60-15 and then there's a BFG
something or other. The rest are all only High Performance or
Touring, which would not really be much fun on the track.
