Anyone running this combo? Kumho has this size...diameter is very close to 195/60-15s that my speedo is calibrated for.

Thanks for the input, Luke. Both those sizes are going smaller in diameter, and I'd rather go up since I do alot of highway driving. Stock diameter was 24.2"...215/50s are 24.5" which sounds good, but I'm worried they would be too wide (hence this post). I can always run the 205/55s but that's getting tall for a 2.2.

No one using this size?

J.

Are you asking if the tires would be too wide for the RS rim? I am running 215/45/16 azenis on my RS rims, and they fit just fine.
