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