I have a 97 camry LE 4cyl that came with 195/70-14 tires. I bought a set of 15" BBS wheels real cheap and need to buy some tires. I see a lot of camrys with 15 wheels that have 205/65-15 tires. I don't understand. Using a tire calculator, that combo is 3% larger dia. A closer match is 205/60-15 which are 0.3% smaller dia and 215/60-15 are 1.7% larger dia. I don't really want 65 series tires and I don't want them to be smaller dia either, although 0.3% smaller is very minimal and surely unnoticable.

I'm leaning to the 215/60-15. Does anybody else use this combo? Is there any clearance issues (wheels have 40mm offset)? Would this look goofy, as in too much tire?

The 205 60 would be the closest to stock in overall diameter but all three sizes should fit without issues. It may be a matter of finding the tire you like best out of the three sizes that are available. Feel free to contact me directly to discuss the details.
