I think 185-60-14 is good size. Looks cooler than stock size and it doesn't look funny. If you still want to go with 195, Go with 195-55-14.
Kumho probablly dosen't carry Ecsta Supra 712's with those size. I would get a set of really good Eco tires. Yeah, tirerack is the place to learn about your tires!
I liked the Michelin XGT H4s as well. The one tire I found was even better (without breaking the bank) was Pirelli P6000 Sport Veloce. Crisper turn in and really made my old Ford Contour SE handle even better. Used to embarass a few much-pricier European cars when the roads got twisty.
How do you drive your car? It depends on your driving style. Do you like you push your car? Do you AutoX or are you willing to? If you are using your car as a daily driver, you won't need any Ultra High performance tires. They are usually louder, and bad for your fuel economy. But if you like to drive your car hard, most "regular" tires won't be enough. That's why I like those europearn designed tires (i.e. Michelin, Pirelli, and Continental) They are usually more spendy, but has good higher speed stability. If you like to drive your car really hard, you can pick those ultra high performance Japanese or Korean brands. They are usually less expensive and grip well, but they usually don't last very long.
For you, I recommend Michelin Pilot XGT-H4/V4 or Pirelli P6000 Sport Veloce. They are a little expensive, but last long, worth it.
I tend to drive aggressive, I noticed that my stock Dunlops are pretty much worn out. I have the Michellin's on my CR-V and remember paying about $110 per tire about a year ago. I do notice that they stick better when cornering fast.
But seriously, though. I agree with Yosuke, though. I have had my Yokohama for about two years, about 30K miles on it. It is a good summer tires, but a lousy performer in winter. You are better off with Kumho, IMO.
overlooked is my boy!!!!!
Im rollin on them 215/35/18's
and as for Yokohama, I have the Spec 2's and they handle like crazy...
like lil wayne says,
"ferrari looks nice with low pro Yokohamas with 20"s pokin out of 'em "
Hello, I have a 98 nissan Sentra GXE. I recently bought it and the speedometer cluster doesn't have any lights. I've done my research and have found that when I had taken out the cluster to try and replace bulbs and make sure things were connected, it was actually missing a part. I can't find...

1996 Nissan Sentra GA16DE Manual trans (base model). Two weeks ago my timing chain skipped a few teeth and since then I did a whole timing chain rebuild including new water pump, thermostat and new belts. At this point I got the car to run and know that the timing chain and it’s components work...
