I'd use 205/50/15 for racing only. I had some on for daily driving, and it was so annoying because either I was going too slow or my revs were too high to keep a certain speed. I didn't think it was going to be that bad, but I regretted it. I use 205/55/15 for daily driving now.

I use those.
I even had 195-50-15 before that.

It does effectively shorten the final drive ratio.

I drove around with a GPS for a while. Indicated 66 was really 60.

Indicated 88 was really 80. You get the idea.

Those are 205-50-15's i the photo. I used to drive on them everyday, but they are too worn now.

On 8's even. I also have have a set of 205-50-15 on 6.5 (stock width) wheels. But those are V710's. Not for daily driving.
