That'd be my guess too.

Depends on the use you have in mind.  Comp T/As are great tires, wet or dry.
For dry roads, as long as you don't have a clearance problem, I don't see any
problem with the 215s, but they will be *Evil* when there's a flake of snow
on the roads.  If you won't have to live with that problem, then again, I
don't see any problems.
