I almost tacked this on to one of the many existing tire threads

But I found that the OP typically just had a question or two and then floodgates open on the best combo of rim and tire size

195/65's come up all the time because they have a larger footprint then stock but are pretty close to stock height

Everyone who has shopped for this size knows that high performance summer tires pretty much don't exist with the alternative being bland all-season tires

I have Eagle GT's on the car now, but while they have worn great and evenly, they won't pass inspection this year

So with the big name tire manufacturers not providing anything interesting in this size, I decided to see what the small or off brand tire manufacturers had

The first tire I landed on was the Accelera 951 that I found at multiple online retailers for cheap

They were discontinued and therefore maybe a little older date code, but the reality was that nobody actually had them in stock (I had to place orders to find out as nobody answers email these days)

So I think I found a couple of good choices, but landed on this one

Before I reveal the brand or comment on it myself, I am just going to post some pictures of the tire - post what you think
