Since its a 2.0 , I think it is far better that you opt for 225's or lesser.Or have you done some mods?Anyways the wheels are real drool worthy!!

Hey,

Can anyone suggest me what should be the air pressure for 195/60-R15 Tyres? I am using 30PSI. Is that ok?

30 is ok when you are driving alone. When full load and high speed driving - use 32 or 33 PSI.
