Just had a random thought on tires(did some searching and couldn't find much info on small tires).
has anyone ever tried this tire size on their sentra?
reason I ask is the sticker on the glovebox says recommended tire size is 155/80 R13, while my 1988 sentra has 175/70 R13. did these cars come with this "recommended" tire size from the factory?
what advantage/disadvantage would these tires make to handling? traction?
my current all seasons are half worn out so I'm thinking of just getting some winter tires for next year, keeping my banana peels for summer. would the 155 tire be a good choice for winter? Or would I be better off sticking with the 175 tires all year round? the 155s are a couple $$ cheaper. Always a good thing :thumbup: .

hey your experience muccman just made me reconsider those dinky tires :)
I can get some michelin X-ice 155/80/13 for $75(CND) each regular price at canadian tire. If I wait long enough they may even have a half price sale.
those would be great for winter wouldn't they? Or maybe some blizzaks WS-50(if they make em in that size).
btw I generally drive like a granny(my immature rally driver side does come out occaisionally though) so lateral traction ain't a critical issue. And a brand new winter tire 155 size is probably still better traction than a 175 size BFgoodrich banana skin, right?
