i would recommend the smaller tyre size. primary reason is better wet traction
with the narrower tyres. dry adhesion you have plenty off anyway.
i'm about the re-tyre the ur-q, and wouldn't go any bigger than 225. actually
i think that the ur-q is about perfect with 215/50's, although i know that my
old ur-q and recent s2 understeered less with bigger rubber...
