Track tire SIZE suggestion

Wie gehts,

Looking for the most effective track / road tire size.  Currently, running 205/60/15.  Almost rubbing on one side.  Thinking of 185 or 195/50/15.  I realize the speedo will be inaccurate.

The vehicle is only driven in dry climates ( no rain).  I don't want to make the mistake of buying a tire that is great on the road but gets shredded on the track.  





Wheel repair / restoration in Phoenix

Does anybody have the name of a reliable and not too costly wheel repair / restoration mechanic in the Phoenix, AZ area? Most of the ones I go into are working on rim rash and discoloration. I have some old Fuchs that need to have the alloy built up and weld work done on 5 wheels. I need a good technician with the right equipment.

I see from older articles that you "recommend 205/60-15's for street use on stock 914s", but your advice was given to a guy with alloy rims.I need new tires for my stock steel rims. Is your recommendation the same for those? Any other size options worth considering? Any particular manufacturer or model you'd care to recommend to maximize performance/fun for someone driving around town but not racing?Thank You for your time.
