60 series -vs- 55 series tires

Recommended Posts

I just nailed down purchasing a set of completely re-furbished 5 spoke 16 inch wheels for my 96 Cutlass. These will go great with my NOS center caps! My existing wheels currently have 225-60-16 Uniroyal Tiger Paw Touring ties. Great tires for what they are, But I'm wondering, can I get better handling and/or cornering if I go to a 55 series or even a 50 series tire on my new wheels? I'm not planning on even putting them on the car until next year, the car will be laid up for the winter soon. No foul weather driving planned for this car.

I'm all for getting the best handling/cornering I can get out of the car to compensate somewhat for the turtle slow 3.1
