Tyre Suggestions

I'm about to purchase a set of 15" EB Spac wheels and am starting to think about what type of rubber they should be shod with

Currently I have 215's on ( only 14's though ) and they grip ok, but I think I'd prefer 225's.

Im looking to spend around $120-$140 per tyre and was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions. Id like them to be pretty good in the both wet and dry conditions, wear well, road noise isnt really a concern.
Also what profile should I go to keep my speedo accurate? its a 90 model EA GL Falcon, originally had 185/65's i think.

Any and all suggestions appreciated

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Yokohama tyres I would be going for should be able to pick up a set of A509's in that price range. I understand they have a A539 as well now.

Worth a look, and great tyres
