For a street car, 205 is plenty of tire which means a 6" wheel is really all you need.  I think the 15" look GREAT on 'Jasper', but here's the rub:  a 205/60R13 is just about the same as a 205/50R15 and costs $25 less per wheel and $50 less per tire.


Judson is right, and I would add the smaller wheels are lighter - read my reply on the other wheel thread. Light makes right.  I can lift a panasport with 13" tire easily with one hand and mount it - it is a feather. Not so 15" and higher wheel/tire combos.
