No. 65 is too tall an aspect ratio for the 195. Try moving to a 205/55 if you must have a fatter tire, or keeping the 195/60. 195/60 is still plenty of contact patch for a stock GT. I wouldn´t increase tire width unless you seriously modify your car, like adding the turbo everybody dreams about, to compensate for the added power.

I personally use 195/50r15 on my gt...I like the rigidity of the lower sidewalls... have seen people run 205/50r15 also...but cannot remember if they had any peoblems with the rears due to increased width

The best compromise I have found when coming from the stock 185/60-15 is a 195/55-15. It is ever so slightly shorter, but not significantly so, as to affect the speedo or gearing.

Shiny, 195/60/15 is not stock. Stock is 185/60/15. Everyone, however replaces them with 195/60/15 because the stock size is hard to get and would be pricy, and the OEM Eagle GT+4 is long discontinued. I told you I was anal. Anyhoo, most used EGTs are bought with 195/60/15 and so many folx think it´s stock :p

Brad is right...185/60 15´s

A Perfect match within .03" is a 215/40 17 :)

Although I dont think I can lower my scort with the 215´s under there. I´m thinking of going to 205´s.

Yeah, 185/60/15 is stock on the GTs. I found a set of Goodyear tires. but they were like 100 a piece. screw that! I got 195s on my car now.

Consider this my gift to the FEOA today:
Since I work for a Sears AutoCenter I put together a chart for EGT tires....want me to size out other sizes let me know:

Stock EGT Tire Size
**********************************
* 23.7401 inches Tall 185/60 15 *
**********************************

Not good to exceed 2% difference
+/- 2% = 0.474802 (half inch)
23.2661 < Tire Size < 24.2141

24.2125 195/60 15
23.4448 195/55 15
22.6771 195/50 15 ***Not Good to use***

23.6771 195/50 16
24.0708 205/50 16

23.7716 215/40 17
23.4566 205/40 17
