im running a 205/60/15 tire on CD5 rims and they look good but i roll over the tire. so i have a lot of wear on the outer edge even at 38psi.

1. Hankook K102 205/55-15 (4/10) - too much tire noise due to wide tire pattern
2. Yokohama DNA db ES500 215/40-17 (8/10) - quiet, nice tire pattern for CB7
3. Dunlop SP9000 215/45-17 (9/10) - grip + stopping, really good.
4. Toyo Transas Teo 195/60-15 (7/10) - good for everyday driving

Yo! I knew the tires as soon as i saw the pics! I have been in love with that tire since it came out. I was never adventerous enough to get a 225/35. I stayed with a 215/40/18.
Pirelli P7000 SuperSport (5.5/10)
Yokohama Parada Spec2 (8/10)
BFGoodrich T/A KDW g-force (8.5/10)
Nitto Neo-Gen (8/10)

Now running a 235/45/17 (Acura TL). Yokohama Avid H4S. Just had them installed on Friday. I've heard nothing BUT good about these tires, so i'm looking forward to rating their performance

205/50's would be wide and thin enough for me. i just want to see if i can go wider than 195/60. itll be a better contact patch to the ground and itll give you a little bit better handling.

ACCORDing2R may have said something they shouldn't have...
Falken AZENIS RT-615
205/50/15 W
10 out of 10

+ excellent tires! the harder you corner the warmer and stickier they get
- 200 treadwear --> 3 months of spirited driving and you've got slicks



Michelin X-ICE
195/60/15 Q
8 out of 10

+ really good on snow & ice but squeal like little piglets when cornering on dry
- 60 sidewall too high --> soft over bumps but handles like a minivan

195 60 15 Bridgestone Potenza G009 7.5/10. Wouldn't buy again because they are softer than I like. Wear pretty well, even under hard driving, have survived many parking lot burnouts. Grip corners decently dry, rain stinks. Too soft a sidewall for my liking IMO though.

I know a 205 isn't too wide for the rims you guys are talking about. A couple prelude people have them with 205/55/15's on 4g prelude. The problem would come about it these cars can't handle a 205 tire on stock rims. However, because numerous people have prelude rims (that are the same width and offset as 94+ accord and probably cb7 rims too) with 205's (and some other with up to 225's on 18's), a 205 isn't going to cause problems.

Currently running stock 92-93 EX wheels with crappy Hercules tires, putting a set of Continental's on them. Also just picked up a set of 17x7 Konig Rated R's with Michelin Pilot HX MXM4's for the summer. They need a bit of work (minor curb rash and they need 2 new tires) but I got them for almost nothing.

I run these tires on my JDM ITR wheels. And no they don't rub.
I also ran Falken AZENIS Sport (the old version of the Azenis) on '95 EXR rims and no they didn't rub at all.

I'm lowered 2.2 inches - no rubbish issues.

I just mounted some Hankook iPike303 (or something like that) snow and ice tires on 92 prelude si wheels. Look nice, but haven't driven the car with them on yet. We're supposed to get 3 inches of snow wednesday and 5 more on friday, so I'll have a decent review for their traction.

Decided to update since we've finally had a bit of snow. These tires are sweet They're quiet after the first 50 miles, they don't squirm, and they grip like none other in the wet or slick. They are NOT ice tires until you stud them though.
