I want to get some info from fellow members here.

I am going to be trading in my snow tires for summer tires on my 94 LS (15" stock rims) within the next month and want to know what you run during the summer.

What do you look for? Speed rating, tread wear, looks, etc?

Also want to say I'm looking to stay under $100 per tire.

And if you have a good recommendation please advise.

Thanks!

Can only manufacturer spec 195/65R15 be used on the stock 15" wheel? I'm not well versed on tires, so I apologize for these "dumb" questions.

If I can use others, whats the max that will fit on stock rim? 205/60 R15?
When I order I want to make sure I know what I'm talking about.

Stock 164 15" wheel is 6" wide. You can use a 215-60-15 but that is about the widest you can use a 6" wide rim.

Most use 205-60-15 but I have seen 205-65-15 size but it will affect speedo somewhat.

Tire size comparision speedo calibration Tire Size Calculator

Tire size to rim width limits Rim / Wheel Width
That being said, which size do you use? I like the wider look, but not if it's pushing the limits.
