    Just to add to the information (or confusion!) I use Falken Ziex Ecorun 205/65 R15 tyres on my Cabrio. They seem to perform well and the wear rate on the front is minimal. A bit higher on the back but that's probably partly due to a small amount of toe-in.

    I meant to add that these tyres were less than £80 each fitted but that was 3 or 4 years ago.

    Thanks. I've noticed there is a lot more choice in the 205's and from decent brands at sensible prices.

    I've been measuring, allowing for ±3% growth in the tyre diameter (is that correct?) under load and the 65 profile will take the tyre into direct contact with the bolts that hold the wing on, so that's not good! Even ignoring that they only just clear. 60 profile gives me back some sensible clearance.

    I have to wonder if the wings are closer to the wheels on this car if the factory spec is up to 205/65x15.
