An known friend of mine had upgraded from stock tubes to 185/60/R14. The car is rock solid and the ride is good.
Well Bridgestone isn't spot on. 185/65 R14 is a better bet, but I don't think they have a tyre in that size.

Guys, please stop believing stuff on manufacturer sites as the absolute truth. Do a little bit of research.

Well, dont got a wind tunnel at home, but i can always take it to the same place and see if has the same effect.
In my honest opinion, spoilers will add to the turbulence effect.

they are suppose to help streamline the car at high speeds (and provide downward thrust too, i guess, for traction).

turbulence (from another incoming vehicle) is totally irrelevant in the design of the spoilers.
