If you look at my post for the 855D turbo review, there's a picture of highway radials on 15 inch rims. I'm running 205-75-15s on 15x5 5-4.5 Allied Mod Trailer Wheels. The bolt pattern is exact and the center hole is perhaps a mm or so larger but holds the dust cover well. Les Schwab can measure them up and match them in their catalog if yours is different. They only came in white with purple pinstripes. I didn't want my camo 855D looking like the Idaho Pimpmobile, so I painted them black. You'll get a firmer ride due to the 30 psi pressure, but better roll and fuel economy. Acceleration is faster as well. I was getting some toe-in wear on my stock tires so an alignment was done. When I gave Les Schwab the numbers JD provided and they entered them into their computer alignment machine, it said "Geo Metro". Easy to remember now. The setup is pretty close to maximum diameter while not dinging the front fenders. You need some clearance for spring depression while turning. I've never rubbed this set. 215 width should work fine. Just make sure the front end is up when mounted to verify clearances. When you do the job, make sure your display is reset for the appropriate diameter so the speedometer gives the right numbers. If you need the procedure, it's in the service manual or you can PM me later for it.
