225-60R16s for sure. 215s just look too small for the body style.

Tires that I personally recommend:

Rated in rank

Bridgestone Potenza G 009 - $84
Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Positions - $118
Michelin Primacy MXV4 - $127
Michelin HydroEdge - $119
Bridgestone Turanza Serenity - $125
Goodyear Eagle ResponsEdge - $107
Goodyear Assurance TripleTred

G009s are definitely the best bang for the buck IMHO, but if you want to spend a little more for something better, I definitely recommend the HydroEdge or the TripleTreds for many reasons including that they both last 80-90k miles and are both EXCELLENT all seasons.

I dont need tires that last 80-90k miles, liable be dry rot before then...

Maybe I'll pok around localy to find someone with Bridgestone Gs



My Goodyear Eagle GAs look more expensive to replace than anything mentioned here @ $128 each

Yeah right, at $212 a piece, and beside mine doesn't spin the wheels enough to make enough smoke to be worth it

I have to just put my input in here, they are a bit more expensive I believe but, I just got a set of Continental ContiProContacts for my car and....WOW is about all I can say. I can barely ever get them to lose traction and let'* just say the speeds I can turn at without having a problem I cannot post on here... (their wet traction is amazing too, btw)
