Hi all,

I am due for a new set of tyres on 15's and a wondering what you guys are running/recommending, currently i have yokohama A Drive 205/65 R15's on, I have decided that I am going to go to 215/60R15, but am wondering what people are using.

I know this isnt a great tyre size for performance, but i would like to get the best i possibly can. I am looking at going to yokohama C Drives ($149 each) in the 215's but what else would you recommend for tyres in that size that are decent.

Thanks
Matt

ask your supplier about a tyre called JINYU . great deep tread, soft quiet ride.

Also Michelin XM1's are a good tyre. ive had 2 sets and got atleast 70 thou k's from both sets

stick to the size 205/65/15

I had C Drives on my VL for years, they wore well and had good grip in the wet and dry.

ive been doing some more reading, narrowed it down to the c drives or the potenza 001's, both the same type of tyre, Rhin0o8, why you say stick to the 205's? the 215's will look a bit better and offer a bit more of a contact with the road
