Actually the 195/60R15s would make your speedo be more accurite. It's set for 185/65R15 so that size is closer than the Goodyears were.

I love my Michelin Primacy MXV4s
i have em in 195/60R15 on my stock steelies and they feel great
as bB2NR said the speedo is more accurate now cuz of the size
smooth ride, more accurate speedo, not that expensive (cuz i got em at Costco XD)

i wish the prices would have bee added.i have sumitomo's theyre a hard compond tire because i roll down dirt rds that hae alot of rocks on them and i can also rip through the twisties pretty hard on the way there and back.

now i have xxr 002's with zero offset and carbon fiber flares,i just went to ntb to get new tires because the others are stretched so i wanted a 205 but it rubbed so i said try a 195 60 15 falken and theyre equipment couldnt mount the tire on the rim.so now im going to discount tire tomorrow and im looking for a tire that will grip pretty good but be able to off road.from reading these im going to try a falken something
or bfg something ,not sure.iwas told to check out the kdw tread pattern.worse comes to worse i guess sumitomo's again.i wanted a more agressive tread.only downfall on those tires is wet streets.

If your getting Falken 512 might as well bump up to 912. Falken makes the 912 better IMO.

I went to Costco for a direct stock size replacement.

Got the BFGoodrich Traction T/A's.



Guess which one is stock? Yup, the one with the crazy amount of road gravel. The replacements so far have only collected one or two (one or two rocks, period!), gotta love it. Traction in rainy weather is also much, much better. Don't recall slipping from a standstill yet, unlike the stocks...

I live is "wet country" and that is one of the biggest reasons I got the BFG Traction T/As (one size over at 185/65R15). Great wet and light snow traction.

2006 xB - Falken 912, they are great, good medium ride and sticky. Tread depth new isn't the deepest. Nice looking tire. Silent, no noise.
