    You don't make a decision on tyres depending on the wheel lol.What size are the wheels, what type driving are you doing, how many miles are you doing etc.

    yip, profile = comfort haha, what type of driving you gonna be doing, i.e. are you a "spirited" driver that enjoys the b roads, or do you keep nice n calm?Do you drive it in the wet etc.
    Theres that many good tyres, that its more than likely that you will find one that more than meets your'e requirements.

    I've had LS's, look great with 195/45's.
    As for Yoko's, never had a problem with them in the past, rain or shine, and I ragged the living crap into the golf I had at the time lol.
    Only problem was wear rates...........not very long!

    I had Yoko A539's on my Civic and they were pretty good in both dry and wet.When they let go they were very progressive and easy to correct the slide.

    A539's? I got them fitted with a set of 17's that I bought for the Civic, paid an extra 30 to get them instead of the Nangkangwingwangs they were originally supplied with.

    Had A539's before, great tyre but no longer available.

    Burk76 - I was chatting to you recently about this, your 205-50-15 or maybe 195-50-15's were basically too high a side profile for your cars height and with the -25 offset of the LS's you're getting arch contact.

    195-45-15 as said are the best size and look great on LS's, less 'bubbley' looking than 50's.

    Just nailed a set of Nankangs on the front, not a bad tyre on a budget.

    Other tyres I'd recommend from personal experience; Yoko A539's (can stil be got apparently, some retailers have stock left) Yoko Prada's - same if not just as good as the A539's I thought.

    Bf Goodrich Profiler G, great tyre, also discountinued but I got some recently from a mate that were just scrubbed in.

    Bridgestone Potenza RE720's. Have them on my RA's at the minute, great tyre, loads of wet grip although the sidewalls seem to be quite flexible, possibly cos of the 50 profile they have.
