You can use 225/60/15 or 205/65/15. Check your rear wheel wells for a 
wrinkle in the lining towards the top before you try to 225/60/15.  I just 
took off a set off 205/65/15 Conti Extreme Contact - they weren't a bad tire 
(came with the car) so I put them back on this spring after pulling the 
winter snows in the hopes of wearing them out. I succeeded when I managed to 
skid over 100ft on the fronts (deer) and flat spotted them - took 'em right 
down to the wear bars for about 10inches of rotation. The 225/50/16 Toyo 
proxies feel _alot_ better :-)
