I have standard cookie cutter wheels and use the car for pleasure. My 215/60ZR15 Dunlop D40M2 tires are in need of replacement and are no longer made. I can find 225/50ZR15 but am concerned about fit and adverse handling. What size limitation should I consider?Is it adviseable to stay with the Z rated compound because the suspension was designed for it and downgrading to V or H rating would be different? Can you recommend a couple of brand-model-sizes?
