Need to replace two of my original Yokohamas

Cheers

Got 195/50-15 Goodyear F1 Version 5s on 6.5" rims for my IS earlier this year... awesome tyres , and got them while there was a buy 3 get the 4th free at Goodyear dealers. Bargain!!

Excellent grip wet and dry, but particularly impressed by wet performance. The best road tyre I've ever had - they beat Yokohama 509 and 539 as far as I'm concerned, and both were considered excellent tyres.

I'd be a little hesitant at fitting them to the skinny standard IS rim though...

ContiPremiumContact2 185/55/R15. They're about the same as the Yoko's in the dry, but they're waaaaaaay better in the wet. 195s also fit. The handling is different. Not worse, but different.
