Cool Re: 15 " tire plus

You will be fine with a 205

Not sure if you will gain the height you will need though if you are bottoming out.

Maybe put the pt on a small trailer and pull it?

I dunno, good luck

I think some helper-springs could get rid of you problem. That way the suspension won 't get so low. But as Busa said, 205 is no problem, but you will only gain 12 mm overall which means only 6 mm higher than stock

Maybe your struts are worn ?

I run 205/60/15's with No Problem!

As the Guys above said, don't think it will help your bottoming out when towing it. Does it bottom out when you drive it? How do you tow it, on a wheel dolly up front and the rear bottoms out? Do you have it loaded with extra cargo/luggage like you would a trailer when you are towing it?
