Potenza RE88

I just got my self a free pair of Bridgestone Potenza RE88, wasnt able to find any good info on the net about them. Does anyone have experience with these tires?

Long time ago, I used to have Potenza RE71...these tires stuck better the balder they got...kinda funny but they stuck like glue the more they'd wear. Sorry, no experience with the RE88's tho.

In regards to these tires,
Their size is 205-65-15...will they fit on 15" rims without causing problems. My other summer tires were 205-60-15...Someone mentioned the possiblity of suspension problems occuring due to their height..

The 65 profile should work, but it may throw your speedo off a little. The overall wheel span should remain constant...which for e30's is 24" (i believe). Anything bigger or smaller will throw off the speedo. Check ur owner's manual as it states the correct tire width/profile/size ratio for your car.
