What tires?
It's time for me to get new tires. My Pirelli's are practically bald.

I just have stock GTS premium wheels (the 16"). Any tire recommendations? I don't want to spend a fortune smile The current tires are 205/55 16s.

Hehe, those would be nice. I suppose it almost doesn't matter as long as I spend at least $100 a tire and it's Z rated.

I have to pick something quick, otherwise next time it rains I'm screwed smile

Does anyone know if 215 / 55 16 will fit on stock GTS rims? Got a friend with a Civic who said he could fit 215 on his stock 16's.

If the would fit, is it any more dangerous? Sounds like it would be more likely to blow out, or try to, so it's pushing harder against the rims.

I agree, the ZE 512s are excellent.

yes it will fit, but the diameter will be much larger than stock
