the tread is designed for excellent dry performance and very very good wet traction.
they are an excellent tire and are very cost effective for my size. $112/ea + shipping from Tire Rack, paid $252 total shipped to my door for the pair.

Actually, a lot of cars have 17" wheels or larger.
My 88 Formula, our 2007 Chevy Cobalt SS, and our 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500.

Here's a pic of my 88 Formula,

I'm wondering what the advantage of the large diameter is, because it would be the overall diameter of the wheel and tire that would effect performance and mileage, and those tires appear to be low rise. Is the outside diameter actually greater than other cars of it's type with 14 or 15 inch wheels?

No diameter difference normally but with less side wall the tire performs better for sidewall flex but also performs less shock absorption as well. Hence why extreme lowpro tires will bend alloys so easily.

And how does decreasing sidewall flex help...more traction...less tire wear...or?

lower profile tire gives you more cornering ability before the tire folds over on itself, as well as giving you sharper more precise control when making hard left/right corrections.
When you normally go with a larger wheel, you go with a lower profile tire to keep the overall diameter the same so that the speedometer will read correctly.

I can see where that would be important in competition, or if one simply liked driving in that fashion, but would one see or feel any difference in routine day to day driving?

Bye stiffening the tire with less sidewall the tires contact patch is enhanced. With less deflection the car also has a more direct connection to the road and this can be good (smooth roads/race tracks) or bad normal to poor road conditions. You ask if it matters in normal day to day driving.....not in the least. I have a '72 with 14" rims that drives crazy good and a '05 with 18" that drives amazing as well.

Thanks to both of you, my questions about this wasn't for the purpose of buying new tires, only to sate my curiosity. I only need one tire... a 15" Goodyear Wrangler, so that all of them matches. I will probably buy it at Walmart, since they seemed to have the best price, but from past experience, I tend to doubt their expertise. That is the reason for my installation questions.
