Sorry around the confusion/typo in my initial post and also question. That is repair below. Thanks!My car uses "P195/65R15" wheels/tires. Will certainly "P195/60R15" fit on mine car? My understanding is that the "60" rather of "65" means it would certainly be a smaller tire and also therefore must fit fine?

in your title you ask because that 195"s yet in the tread the 165??? if the 195"s, correct it will certainly fit however if its 165 it depends on the widh the the rim, check the calculator to obtain a view of it, likewise check part youtube videos ~ above "streatching tires" you would certainly be surpriced what sizes they to the right

The issue is your speedometer, not the to the right of the tires to the rim. You don"t desire an inaccurate speedometer, odometer, etc. It think if you want to relocate to 60 series profile the tire size must be P185/60R15. (You require to readjust all 4 tires, together.)Why do you desire to readjust the tire size?

The second number is the element ratio. 65% that 195mm is the sidewall height of the an initial tyre; 60% the 165mm is the sidewall height of the 2nd tyre. These tyres are totally different. The second tyre is skinnier (by far) and has a reduced sidewall height. Her speedo (and odo) will certainly over read choose mad, to the song of 9%. So as soon as it says you are going 109, you"re in reality going 100. Once you"ve travelled 20,000km, her odometer will show you"ve gone 21800km. If your automobile has ABS the not correct circumference have the right to throw the system off badly, resulting in brakes that either lock on you (causing loss of control) or pulse/release pressure prior to the wheel(s) actually lock (resulting in long braking distances).This is a negative idea. And also believe me...I know a thing or two, about bad ideas.

Thanks. Ns guess the would help with the speeding too! when you to speak "should it is in okay" - what would be the potential problem if that weren"t ok? that looks a little odd and also sounds different? damage to the car? Worse traction? Fiery crash bring about disfigurement?

Guess i should have actually said "you"ll be okay" lol. Tyres have the exact same width therefore traction will be around the same. Sidewall elevation is slightly much shorter so you"ll get a contempt harsher ride because that the same make/model tire in various sizes--but they space both in the 60s, you"re more than likely not going to notice. Not prefer going to a 17" with a 45 or for this reason profile whereby you"ll absolutely feel the difference. Auto is not most likely to get damaged since nothing is larger around the tire (it"s actually smaller sized overall) for this reason not prefer anything deserve to rub.
