My 95 Altima needs new tires. And I want tires that are wider than stock. Stock is 205-60 on 15x6 rims.

Both Michelin's and Yokohama's web sites say I can go as wide as 225, which would put me at a ratio of 60 (almost 1 inch taller in diameter).

Does anyone have experience doing this? I'm worried that tires this size may rub the wheel wells, struts, etc. Thanks.

you can almost always go up 2 and down to on your tire size without any rubbing or major speed0/odometer errors. This would give you a 225/50R15 with no problems that I know of for your Altima. Check out tiredog.com and put in 205/60R15 your stock size and then any other sizes you want like the 225/50R15, 215/55R15, or going to a smaller overall diameter will give you more off the line acceleration like a 205/50R15 will give you the ability to smoke the tires if you wanted to because it fools the car into thinking you have change the overall gear ratio of your car with the smaller diameter tires. my e-mail is diacovone@aol.com
