I am using 205/60R15 GIII on mine, and so far they are great compared to the stock, but I have only done about 1000KMS and 2 Expressway runs, the car feels much better on the highway.

Performance or comfort?

You could look at 205/55/16s.

I am not planning upsize to 16 incher and will stick with the current alloys that I have, hence only 15 incher. I am looking for a good compromise between performance and comfort. 205 seems a good option. I also need to find out cost for these tyres. I was quoted 5350 per tyre for GIII, is this good enough
