Yellows... I'm not to sure I like the 205 tire. It does seem a little tall, I should have gone with my first choice of 195 but I got these for the same price so I'll deal. Oh and the ride is so much nicer. Having balanced wheels is so money.

Hey bro,
The 205 refers to the width of the tire (the contact patch if you will), it has nothing to do with height (sidewall).
For example, 205/50/15 means 205 mm wide, 50mm height, and 15 inches in diameter. Obviously, the taller the tire, the more comfortable ride at the expense of sidewall flex (handling).

the 2nd number of 50 is not how many mm tall the sidewall is an aspect ratio of height to in sense a 205/50 will be higher than a 195/50...but yes, 205 is how many mm it is across... :wink:
