    Not sure if that is the size you are considering but watch your aspect ratio. 65/205 is a shorter tire. I am running 245/60/15 on the front and 255/60/15 on the rear.

    You can compare on websites like https://tiresize.com/calculator/.

    My BF Goodrich T/A's were made in Mexico

    Kumho tires for me. Got 70K miles on two different sets...only rotating them once in their life span. Very hard to beat...even have as good reviews as Michelin, BF Goodrich and Goodyear on a lot of applications.

    I’m nicknamed Sasquatch & it isn’t just because I’m 6’4” 300.

    My first set of tires where from Japan (Falken) and were great, next set were from Korea (Hankook), and are even better. Guess I have a Korean Kamaro now , lol.
