The Tires I Have is 195/60/R15 and I Might Buy 205/70/R15 Would They Fit?

Would they fit? I need summer tires but cannot afford too too much and the tires i got on are Continental 195/60/R15 on my 2006 Cobalt (4 BOLT). And someone is selling 90% tred Set of 4 Michelin HydroEdge All season 205/70 R15. Just the tires no rims

Can I just get them put on my rims that I have? Thanks




*sorry its 195/60R/15 and 205/70R/15 .....lol my bad

Probably fit if your car isn't lowered. It might rub when you cut very sharp. I would try them. But your speedometer will be off by almost 9%, meaning at 60mph on the speedometer you will actually be going 65. You will also notice a slight loss in take off power. Michelin Hydroedge is a very good tire you will probably never wear them out.

Every minute spent angry is a happy minute lost for ever and ever!!!

its not lowered. its a 4 door. does it cost much to get your spedometer re calibrated? Are they a good tire for better fuel economy?






this person said there is 90% tred and is $250 OBO ..... so i figured it would be a decent deal.

If there really is 90% thread it's a good deal. I wouldn't recalibrate if your going to go back to winter tires in the fall. Eventhough they are listed as an all season and they are very good in the rain I'm afraid they aren't very good in the snow. So if you were thinking of driving these next winter and if you have winters where you live forget it.

Yes i have studded tires for 195/60r/15 . I have to wait till pay day to give this lady an offer. The only problem is they put that TIRE SHINE crap on the tred. Thats the only thing that annoyed me about the thing


But this is a picture of those tires. All i know is there is alot more tread on this tire than the summer tires i have on there right now lol

Might want to check manufacture date. It will be a 4 digit number like in this picture 4503. This means they were manufacture in the 45th week of 2003. They may have sprayed the tires to hide aging cracks. This picture I just took off of a HydroEdge I happen to have here.
