So it's time to buy new tires soon.
I live in California and rain is not a big concern to me.
I have the stock 15 inch rims.
What's the widest tire I can put on there?
What will give me the best traction/handling w/o wearing out in 15000 miles?

you can put a 215 tire on the stockers. if you want a good bang for your buck tire then go with kumho ecsta 712s.

I ran the 712's on both of our cars and they were awsome handling tires but they didn't wear very well at all. I think we both gor about 17k out of them. We switched to the 711's and they are holding up much better and handling both dry and wet are great.

FYI, I found a few places on ebay that will sell you 4 of the Stock 16" rims/ tires brand new for less than I paid for new tires to fit my 15". Wish I had found those places sooner. I think BAT inc. is one of them.
