Michael - Your vehicle should have came originally equipted with tire size 185/55R15 and your wheels (BBS) should be 6'' wide. 185/55R15 is a size with limited availibility from vary many manafactuers. But you are in luck! You do have options. The 185/55R15 has an overall diameter (tire hieght) of 23.01'', you can use size 195/50R15 as a plus "0" fitment for your vehicle. A 195/50R15 has a O.D. of 22.80'', a rule of thumb is as long as you stay within approx. 3/10th of an inch of the original tire hieght it is an acceptable replacement option. You could as well look at a 205/50R15 as an option O.D. = 23.10. Both sizes will correctly fit on your 6'' wide BBS wheels. Visit the Dunlop Tire web site @ dunloptire.com and check out the SP4000, SP8000, SP9000 to see which one serves you driving needs & style the best. I'm sure you will find one of them to exellent choice. Hope this helps.
