205/50x15 is a good size for the 7" alloys and the Alfa 155.

Used to have this size on my 6.5" Alfa alloys on my previous 155.

Good handling, looks and comfort.

The 6.5 or 7 is the width of the wheel, don't worry too much about this. The narrowest tyre you want is a 195 but I think the 205 is better. You should also be able to get a 215 tyre on but may get some nasty chafing :O

Re: Tyres

I had loads of Khumo's a few years back, dunno if they've improved but they're a hard tyre. Ok in the dry but a bit iffy in the wet.

I'll second Wrinx on that.

Still a decent choice if you are on a budget, their new tyres are getting better all the while.

I have Kumhos on at the mo, not sure what model, will look later. They seem ok but nothing special, break traction too early for my liking, can;t seem to get any power down on a bend.

But the sliding is fun.:D

They are the wrong size for the 155 though.
Should be 205/50/15 or 195/55/15.

Good point Marlon....only let down by the fact that the difference between 195/50 and 205/50 is -1.71% or -10mm :O and the difference between 205/50 and 195/55 is exactly the same error but positive +1.71% or +10mm....wierd huh!

So the choice is 205/50's or plus/minus 10mm :O:eek::eek:..there is no tyre size nearer for 15's.
