First off, I'd recommend the +0, 195/60/15, size. The narrower sidewall; lower profile,
will give you better steering response and the wider cotact patch will improve
traction on dry and wet roads. Overall, it's a better handling package.
If you're looking for a slightly higer level of performance, you might want to consider
moving up from the s rated standard to an h rated performace tire. The 3/98 Consumer
Reports tire review recommends the Dunlop D60A2 as their "Best Buy". This tire comes
in the +0 size you need and the price is in the same range as the S rated tires you're
