I have a 97 RS, Eibach pro-kit/AGX shocks install underway. :dunno: My question is about choosing right size tire. I just picked up some 15" 5 spoke rims, and need right tire size. I just bought some Fuzion HRI's 195/60R15's. They seem like they will be way too tall. I almost want to take them back and get the Fuzion ZRI's 205/55/R15. What is the right tire size I need? Thanks

I'm guessing the car had 195/70/14's stock? I'm basing that off tire racks listings. Those have a diameter of about 24.75". The 205/55/15 has a diameter of 23.87". That difference will start to throw off your speedo. The 205/60/15 is the "prefered" stock size at a 24.68 diameter. Since you are lowering you need to determine if you want to stick with a taller tire and keep your speedo close to stock. Or go with a slightly lower profile. Also consider what the wheel gap will look like.
