go with somethin like a 265/60....a nice wide tire, with some sidewall for the added comfort of driving

Nope, 265 is the width in mm. 60 means that one side wall is 60% of the tires width. The 16 is the rim diameter in inches. So convert the 265 to inches. Multiply by 1.2 and add 16. You've got the tire diameter. And the tire would be 265/60R16.

yea, what he said lol....the 265 (width) would make for a nice wide stance, the 60 (sidewall height) would make for a slightly low profile, kinda, but wouldnt be so small that it would ride rough
