I am looking to get proper tires on my rms this season. Decent Summers, don't need any hi po shit, don't track, don't auto-x, I am a point a to b/cruiser/occasional spirited driver.

I *think* the right size is 205/55/15's, I have 205/50/15s now (undersized) in the front and 205/60/15 (oversized) out back but I will actually have some money this season so I would like to get some decent tires come late april.

No I can't put anything on bigger than 205 cause of et33 so don't tell me to unless you want to buy me spacers.

205/55/15.

Really good, and also cheap summer tire in that size: Kumho SPT. Listed at $112 per tire at Tiretrends.com, local places can match that too.

And THANK YOU for finally buying proper tires for those things.

Hey Jay, while we are on the topic.

How are Dunlops SP Sport FM901?
They are the only 205/55r15s I can get at a decent price from work.

Haha I didn't know they where both the wrong size until you told me at the first e30 meet. I didn't even know the fronts where undersized. Guess I shoulda figured though. They both used to have 50's

They pretty much suck all around, unfortunately.

Yeah, te 901's suck. Loud as hell, no grip in wet, mediocre dry.
