Yeah we got a little out of pace here..

I would go with a 215 65 15 ... That will be plenty wide for a 15" rim..

With the 215 65 15 your speedo will read 1.1% faster than your actual speed
still better off with 16"* though!!

Thats I agree with Ryan... The 16'* on my LE were worth every penny



When do we plan on getting the new 15" tires?

On a P21560R15 Tire.
P- ---is Passenger tire
215- is the width of the tire
60--- is the aspect ratio which means the the hight of the tire is 60% of the width in other words 60% of 215
R ----stands for radial
15 - rim size.


Hope this helps

I've got 205/75/14'* on my LeSabre. I'm getting 16 inch wheels, as soon as I can, because those 205'* handle like crap. Especially since they're cheap Kumho'*.. what was I thinking!!

At least my rears have the same size, but use the good BF goodrich long trail radials. Man those are nice tires.

Ive got the stock 15" rim on my 90, and I had a set of Michelin Pilot XGTH4'*.

Those were the BEST tire I have ever owned for summer, cornering, handling.

But, in winter...I went nowhere.

I switched to the Goodyear HSRA'* and im not too happy with those.

Did you ever get that suspension problem fixed? That will be a problem no matter what tires you have. If that spring lets go you will need atleast one new one.
