Default 205/55/15 or 195/60/15 Tire choice?

My 205/55/15 S drives have dipped in performance after 15000 km , the last 7-8000 km doing 550km runs at max speeds ie cruising and weaving around cars and trucks at 160-180 consistently .
Still doing the hi-speed runs on them and they are holding up but definitely getting new rubber in a month or so.

S drives are great for a car like a swift .

Very often I drive on on bad , torn up & gravel ly roads . I try to drive slow but it's irritating on long stretches .

S Drive treadwear rating is 300 that's good .

What other choices do i have?

cheers !
