This is exactly what I have been wondering about... using my stock wheels but putting larger tires on. Right now it has 185/65-R15s. I have been considering an LRR 195/65-R15 set. A 25" diameter instead of maybe 24.5." But they'll be slightly wider too, yes?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
