[T3] ANOTHER slipped belt!

Talking about speedo calibration, with stock 165/15 my Variant speedo is
spot on, unlike the 'modern' Golf that over-reads about 10%.

I really  want to keep the same size on the front and back, as I dont want
to have to  have 2 spares and not be able to rotate the tires every couple
years, this  car really gets driven alot and on long trips, or is the 60 and
65 series  close enough to swap them  around?

Oh... and the speedo  issue...
Go with the 185-65's then. You'll be fine with that size, and your  tire guy
should be cool with it too. 
The speedo should be close. You can always calibrate it with your  GPS. ;-)
Keep in mind that your spare will have to stay the 165 size due to tire
width. :O
Or reach into your wallet with a crowbar, and buy some Continentals  in the
165 size. They're still available, just expensive as hell.
