well, i've got a van, but most of the stuff is the same. on a 15x6 rim i've squeezed a 235/60R15 on there and found it to be just to big, a slight amount of rubbing at the very top 1/4 inch on the corner of the tread.

if i could do it again i would have stuck with 225'*

on the otherhand, the grip is amazing.

I have Michelin 225/50R17 on my 91 se and they are great, no rubbing, great handling and are so close to the right size it is not funny.
