Fuchs. Visual on 16’s 6 & 7’s or wider

Those are wide. Much wider. Maybe 9’s on the rear.

Mine are 6/7 15” rims. Think they’re 195/65 and 215/60 P6000’s

Ya they are 8.5 front and 9 rear. I was thinking to try 7/8 first. I may do a 50 series tire though, the bounciness you felt may be due to 60+ series tires.

Yeah but a 50 will give you a smaller diameter overall tyre? What would you gain?

That is TBD, I was told by some local PCA folks that feel and handling would improve with the 50. I want more compliance and a period look so suggested larger sidewall and they poo poo'd it. I'll have to see for myself. Car tuning can be trial & error at times. I had another guy tell me to do 70 series tires but his car was bone stock early 70s.

I can understand a taller sidewall tyre for a softer ride. But 15’s with 50’s are kind of like 16’s with 60’s. Plus it’ll screw your speedo indicated speed? Stock sizes for 15’s are a little narrower anyway which is why I guess they’re said to be a little lighter at parking speed. Be interesting to see what you think.
