I went to 15 x 7 wheels on my '85 4ksq with no modifications.  Handling
inproved remarkably.  I used a Yokohama 4 something 205/50/15 VR tire.  This
handled great in the rain and in the dry (we had both at PIR QCUSA track day
last year).  Sorry I can't remember the the tire model number; it's not made
anymore anyway.
