Will My Cobalt Fit These Tires?

I have a base 2005 2.2L coupe and i am wondering if i can fit a friend's old civic all seasons. They measure:
P195
65R15
89H M+S
Mechanic suggested it should work but figured, why not check here before lugging them out into my car.
Thanks for any advice!

Should fit no problem, slightly taller than the stock tires but just barely

Your speedometer will be off by 3.2%..... when your speedometer says 55mph you will be doing more like 56.5mph haha not even enough to worry about it....

thanks very much y'all. psyched that these will fit on my stock rims!

appreciate the 3.2%! I think my 'balt reads out about 3.2% over at the moment so this probably would get me closer to dead on accuracy!

more like further away lol, 3.2 over plus 3.2 over is 6.4 over. youll be at 58.52 mph at 55.

so if the speed limit is 55 then youll have to go 50 on your speedometer.

Not exactly, larger tires would cause his speedometer to be UNDER by 3.2%

I think the more important question is why is your speedometer off right now? What size tires are you running currently?

i must have misread this as 3.2% over then, i thought by you saying the speed would be more then it would be over, and that if it were under that would mean less speed, my bad.
