Folks, If you're concerned about appearance, then use anything you want. If you're really looking for all-around performance, I'd buy the highest quality 195-205 such as Dunlop's M2. Especially if you are in a wet climate. Race cars get away with wider tires because: they are driving more horsepower to the road, and they are loading the tires with down-force from aerodynamics and G-forces. Under normal street conditions, you'll get less traction with a wider tire.
