So given that my car is a 1982 931 with the five-lug mesh 15" wheels...what size tires am I supposed to have? I need to get new ones, and what I have now are 195/60R15. Mysteriously, Tire Rack does not show that as one of the stock sizes for this vehicle. For the 15" wheels, they show either 185/70, 195/65 or 215/60.

Thanks for that. I always forget about that section of the site, lol.

Of course, it's still confusing...apparently my tires are not a stock size at all. Probably because some of the stock sizes are not so easy to find anymore? I'm not sure I really want a taller sidewall than I currently have. I guess I can stick with 195/60 or go to something like 205/55? I guess I'll see what's available.
