You'd be better off going 195/60/14 anyway. The stock wheel is only 5.5in wide so the 195 has less lateral roll.
That is what I understand. The car is on 195/60/14 at the moment and handles well. Its a balance between the additional 10mm of tread and the sidewall flex.

I have Nexen CP 641 205/60 R14's on mine. They seem to hold the road well in the dry but as I don't drive mine in the wet I don't know how they would perform. Let's put it this way they are 100% better than the 15 year old Dunlops that were on there.

They are awful in the wet. Cold + wet + hard compound = Ditchfinder.

Thanks for your kind words on my tyres ....😀 Lucky I only us it during the summer ...... :D
