Tire Size Question
Ok so after years in modding cars I still can't get my head around tire sizes etc.
My winter set-up is currently 195/65/15 on steel rims, can I run a 205/65/15 w/o any issues?-Mike-

It's a wider tire which typically won't be as good in the snow. But it should work. Just not sure what the width of your wheel is.--

It would be 1/2" taller and wider, which really shouldnt be an issue. With that tall of a tire you should be ok putting it on anywhere from a 6-7.5" width wheel. What car? But Geoffrey is right about the wider tire. A narrow tire will cut through the snow better.
