205's/ eek! no..

go 225s rear and 215s up front or 225s all around.

Depends on $$$$$$$ as usual..

Dunlops, Michelin Predicy (not primacy as there $300ea lol), Bridgestone.... all depends what you want and how much youw ant to spend?

exchasers had 215s.. most cars these days have 215s or 225s.

insurance wont care, they wont even notice.. if they ask anything you bought the car like that and you just pay someone to change what was on there .. they wil lnot bother about things like that.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Right on the money there

It goes on rim width ... not tyre width.
Just got the slightly fatter tyre ... much better grip ... and more range of tyre choices as well (for better tyres)
