A wider tire looks nicer on the Z's in my opinion, I have 225/55's on my truck and like the extra rubber since it's a daily driver. 205/40's are harsh!

thanks guys! the 205/40's arent that bad, of a ride..just way to small for my little 4 banger..makes it sound like its gonna come apart again. too many revs. i think im gonna go with the 215/55 its only 1% difference in the speedo from stock (195/75/14) according to this tire checker thing.. http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp
