Hi Brian,
I don't have a suggestion on tire size.  Perhaps another Bryan who has a website and lots of tire information can help.
In the meantime, what pressures are you running front and rear?  Perhaps two or three additional psi more at each end would simplify the wife's steering difficulties?  Worth a try before springing for that new set.  Might give you some additional things to think about.

Later, JR

I currently have 205/55/R15 on my 65 Corsa convertible.  They are M&S tires with the name Defender on them. It's time to change them.  They're about 10 years old and one has a deep gash in th sidewall.  I'd like to get something easier to turn and with a soft ride.  Performance isn't a priority.  The steering effort with a 15 inch aftermarket wheel is tough!  My wife wants to be able to drive it but says she doesn't have the uscle power it now takes.  Any recommendations?
