Default Tire size

I have a 92 sl1 with stock wheels and tires (i think they're something like 175/70/14). I want to get new tires. I kinda want the widest tires that will fit for handleing. I also commute 150 miles a day so gas mileage and wear is important. Does anyone have suggestions on size and brand?

thats kind of a tough question.wider tires contact more road meaning less fuel economy.also make sure you use the same height tire or your speedometer and fuel economy will be inaccurate.to solve your problem you'll need to sacrafice something.better handling for less miles to the gallon etc..
