I'm not sure if some cars came with a 215/65 option, but mine came with 
215/60 and that's the spec in my owner's manual.  225/60's work, and that's 
what I have on my car, but they will slow your speedometer by almost 2% if 
your car came stock with the 215/60s.  On my car, I think a 215/65 would 
probably rub the wheel wells in turns.
