I have an 87 accord that I'm replacing 4 tires on. Standard issue is 185/70/13. I drive fairly aggressive ly and would appreciate any gains in handling or traction.
What I don't want is a tire that bulges over the rim and looks dumb and rolls over in turns. As far as I can tell I'm limited to a small number of tires because of the 13 inch rim.
I don't have the money to buy larger wheels. Sumitomo makes a 215/50/13. When I called the local tire store they told me a 215 would fit on my rim but I didn't believe them
Any info or experiences?
