Earlier ones were all 5 or 5.5 x 15, except for the infamous 135 x 390 metric rims that *only* took Michelin's (get a 2nd mortgage) TRX. Later 900s went to 6". Sizes listed for the earlyier ones include 165x15, 180/65x15 and 195/60x15. 205/60x15 are a bit too big on rolling resistance but they *are* usually cheaper in Oz 'cos they fit so many of the local bigger cars, so they're a good budget opiton esp around town! I'm running 195/60 on a set of 5.5 original 3 spoke Aero (same as your SPG?) and also a set of 6.5 x 15 aftermarkets at the moment with no clearance, wear or handling problems at all. Any help? Cheers
