Since he has 14x7s, I'd go for the 195/70-14s. Looks like Tire Rack suggests the General Altimax RT43, T-rated. Bigger diameter too over the 205s. Good price as well.

There are better tire choices for 15" wheels! :-)
The tread and sidewalls are perfect. They may have 4000 miles on them. I love the look and stance with this combo. Maybe I'll run Hoosier Street TDs, they're available in 205s :-)
My tires had too much air in them, so I'm going to let some air out and go back on the same piece of highway and see if the tram lining still scares me before I decide what I'm going to do.

It's really hard to find performance tires in those sizes unfortunately
I keep wondering about going your route, but I love the look and stance of the setup I have.
If I decided to go with one of these sizes, I still have a set of Turbanas.
