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 :-)
