« on: January 19, 2009, 11:05:00 am »
It's a dimention that has many tyres to choose and it's cheaper than 185/50s...
What do you think?

the yokohama a048s I have are in that size.  They are quite big though so if your car is lowered a lot they will catch.  I've taken a fair amount of metal off the arches on the wings on my car.  And rolled the lips on the rear arches up. 

There's practically no difference in the overall diameter of the 185/55/14 tyres I have on one set of wheels and the 195/45/15 I have on another set.

Oh.. I'm glad to hear that i won't loose any acceleration/braking...
-I will not have any problems with 3,5 that's sure...

In the other hand i am in a delema for 195/45/15 OR 185/55/14?
You have both setups and you know, what do you suggest me?
