It seems to me that Tire-Rack had some 215s. The Kumhos that come factory are junk, but the Ecsta 4x I had on mine were not junk. Those were just as good as the Conti Pro-Contact I put on there afterwards. Nowadays I'm running a summer tire from Firestone (Indy500 Oval)- I'll have to go look. I can't wait for those to wear out- very loud. The Contis were probably the most quiet, but the Ecstas were much cheaper and not as loud as these Firestones. The only beef I had with the Contis was that they didn't last as long as the Ecstas. IIRC, I got 40k out of the Ecstas, and only 30k out of the Contis.

All have been 215/45/17 run on Centerline Impulse wheels.
