I'm upgrading from my heavily worn steel wheels and these are cheap. What tire would you recommend?
-Thanks!

If they are 16"x6.5" like the newer Perfos, the factory tire size is 225/55R16, I believe. Those should work quite well.

OEMs should be 16 x 6.5 with a 43 ET (offset) stamp. Factory tire for the 850 Turbos with the Columba's was 205/50-16 (the standard Cetus 15 inch rims came with 195/60-15s). You can also go with a 215/50-16 if they are easier to find.
