I have been running 205/55R16 H rated tires on 2005 Mustang 16" rims. I am too crazy about the ride quality so going to switch to 195/65R15 S rated tire on all 4 corners for my 64 Falcon weekend cruiser.

You guys are going to hate me but found brand new looking 15x7 Jeep 5 spoke wheels for $100 and looks great. I am using 1-1/2" wheel spacers on Granada rotors and the back space ends up being 4". Will have to sand of Jeep and repaint the center cap.

Have you tried an S rated 205/55/16 ? it might be softer than a H rated , The Jeep wheel don't look bad though

They don’t make S rated in this size. It does come in T rated but still has stiff side walls.

Ive got 195s on the front and 205s on the rear of my 65 Mustang on 15x7 wheels.

I like the fronts, the rears are one size to small.

Arning drop and mid leafs.

I had a spare 195/65R15 tire and had it installed on the Jeep rims. It’s looks way better and made huge difference in the way car looks and extra rubber for more cushion! They are by no means Torq Trust but are made in USA by American Racing!

Cool idea on the Jeep wheels. There are a few Wrangler wheels that I think would look good too.

Just not sure on the 195s. You sure you want to go skinnier? Have current have 195s (on 14” rims) on my 68, and they are way too skinny!

I ended up getting 205/65R15 Toyo T rated tires with plenty of sidewall height for comfortable ride. I was browsing Facebook Marketplace and ran in to these wheels. They came on 02-06 Jeep and looks like they may have been used only for couple of months. It was hard to pass up for $100 set. The high quality Toyo (made in Japan not China) tires were also cheap at $51 each. Now I have to figure out how to remove JEEP !
