Would 205/55 R15 be a good size for the OHC Vtec. Getting Apollo Acceleres at a discount and hence this question.

205/55/R15 will be too huge IMO.Getting 195/55/R15 will be fine.

It would be too big, 205/50 R15 is perfect and I think the 55 profile would scrape.

I have had the yoko sdrive 205/45/16 on my vtec earlier (for almost 50k kms)...its good with the grip but then the low profile has its problems.

i have the 195/60/14 Yoko ES100 and believe me its the best for the OHC. Perfect grip level and comfort.

Guys, does anybody know the part number for the Thermostat. Im unable to find it at the spares shop here in Calcutta.
My radiator fan is constantly on whenever the ignition is 'on', even on cold starts.
