Snow tire size

Will 205/60R15 snow tires fit on a 05 Balt base model? I'm afraid they'll rub.

They will fit but why are you going wider?

It's a good deal for a set of 4 snow tires

You generally wanna go a size narrower on snow tires rather than a size wider. More contact surface = less grip.

I'd say if you have a choice, 15s work better with snow tires than 18s. That said, my car does awesome in the snow on Blizzaks on 18s

Well 15's will be cheaper, if you only use them in the winter you can save your 18's from the snow and such
