15's for 600? those look nice but i would get bigger rims!
Because when u think about it
after u get some low profile tires the rims are gonna look small!
my 17's look small after I got my tires on

No they don't look small, I've got the same size rims and tires he's getting. 195/55-15 are the same diameter as 205/45-16 and 205/40-17 23.4" Here's a pic of my car to judge. I do thing 16's and 17"s look better though.:rolleyes:

i've heard some bad reveiws about dunlops sport tires. That they have a lot of road noise at freeway speed and that they wheel hop and squeal like a stuck pig. So i got Toyo FZ1 directionals...:super:

Those are some cool rims, not sure about the Dunlops though. Let me know how they handle in the wet & dry. The Toyo Proxes T1-S handles really great, even in the wet! My car feels like it's on rails... :D

Yup the tires sound like one of those raised trucks with off-road tires... vrowowowowowow. :rolleyes:

not sure about the squeal and wheel hop???

But they are waaaaaay better then the stock tires

Tire noise is a common problem to ALL high performance tires, especially Yokahoma A-520's. I find that my accord lacks the quietness to let me hear any tire noise. If I was driving a newer car I'm sure I'd bitch, their to noisy. Also with the Dunlop w-10's I'm running I have never experienced wheel hop or axle tamping. I don't get it at full max takeoffs or while foolishly trying my best to envoke torque steer. And they are completely silent when they do break away, either from g loads or from wheel spin. Toyo Proxes T1-S would be a better tire choice, but at the time I did not have T1-S money. My next tires will be the latest rave with the scca set, AZENIS Sports (RS) by Falken. If those guys can win races on those tires, I think I want some to.

BTW the w-10 is an excellent tire in the rain, they can go 110mph in a steady rain and feel like your driving in the dry.:huh:

The only other tires I ever ran were Fulda's (back in the day) on my '88 Integra and Bridgestone RE-71's on my '85 MR-2 and '86 Corolla GT-S. Both were good tires, but the Bridestone's were by far superior. The Toyo Proxes T1-S handles like the RE-71's but feel softer and I am still trying to get used to the feel of the tires.

RE-71='s S-003 pole position since the 71 has been discontinued.
Curious, why don't you still have either toyota, especally the gt-s. Dang good car(gt-s), wish it had I.R.S, but still nice.

Isn't a extented tire learning curve a bad sign? I'd think the T-1S would be the better tire by a small degree.

I aggree... 15's or 16's are nice... My 17's are fun but they raised my car more then I had wanted and I lost a lot of accelleration.... They look great though.... I think 16's are probably the way to go.... I'll post pics soon....
