My Tein S. Tech springs were just put on my car and my mechanic said it would be best to get smaller tires.
What would be a good size to go with?
My current tires are 195/60r15
And mt wheels are 7 inches wide and have a +35 offset
Thanks in advanced for the help

Reason: Wrongly worded
Sounds like he may not want the tires to be stretched?
If that's the case and your mechanic says to go with a small tire he may be talking about profile/sidewall size, in which case you may want to find a 195/55 or even 195/50. Personally I don't make much money so past few sets of tires have been the Douglas Performance GT-H's which are about 350 for everything. That's just me though, I only drive about 10 miles to work and like 15 miles to school and I don't drive my car hard so they work fine for me. In my case as long as they don't slip when it rains(living in Florida and it rains a lot) and last longer than a year of driving I'm happy with them.
Do I need to go on my rant about why stretched tires are stupid, and extremely dangerous? How about you guys don't make me go through that all over again.
205/50R15 is the correct fitment for your wheel size. Your CURRENT tires are the wrong size, and your speedometer is off by ~5%. 195/55R15 is the absolute smallest thread you should go, but you haven't told us two critical pieces of information: your wheel width and offset.
