if you're putting new tires on, regardless of the brand, i suggest getting 245/60/15's just due to the fact that they're wider and will probably give you some better traction... wider is better my son...

Wide is not good for snow, mud, slush, etc. In these kind of conditions, the wider your tire is, the more your car has to work to move and these kind of conditions are not RWD friendly. My suggestion is that if you experience any of the conditions I have just mentioned, you want close to your stock size, otherwise wider is better, but with wider tires and lower profile, you will lose accuracy of the speedo and odometer.

1) if your odometer has been calibrated for 215/70-15 tires, replacing them with 245/60 R 15's would result in the odometer reading high by 1.04%.

2) nothing magic about that number, it happens all the time :tongue:

Yes, 17 will mess up the speedo and odometer.

However, 240/50 R17 should be fairly close to being able to keep them somewhat accurate.
