Not sure, but why would you want to go from 225'* to 215'*??? to me it does not really make sence to go to a smaller tire(tread width wise)

and you're going to h rated tires on a new ssei??? dont do it. not a gouge at you personally, but im a mechanic and we see people all the time with sports cars (prelude'* mainly) go to h rated tires. why buy a car that can do 128 (ssei), and get tires that are going to blow up at cruising speed? i know my car wont do the 145+, but ive got z rated tires on it. its not just about speed, its also about handling, and ride comfort. with something like h rated tires, you get what you pay for... also, your killing the handling and comfort with tires that are only 215 mm wide. anyways, thats my .02
