Tire Size Question

HI all,

I've searched the forums but havent had much luck locating if this question was asked before so my apologies in advance if it has.

I own a 2010 cobalt LT Team Canada edition and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if these tires would fit it.

205/65r15

thank you,

That's a big tire. I'd say no. 195/65/15 are tight

2009 Ford Escape Limited - 3.0L, 6 speed auto, 4x4, 25/33 city/hwy imp mpg.
2017 F150 XLT-XTR - 5.0L, 4x4, 3.55's, E-locker, xtr chrome package, fx4 off-road package.
20/25 imp mpg

They'd probably fit, but it'd be safer to go down one profile size if possible. I've got 225/45R17 on my LT with lowering springs and I don't have any fitment/rubbing issues. The 205/65R15 is a half inch larger in overall diameter than my tires, so if you're not lowered, you'd probably be okay, but it'd be safest to go smaller if possible.

Also it's important to note that changing tire size from factory will affect your speedometer's accuracy. If you want an accurate speedometer, look for a tire that's close in overall diameter to the stock 195/60R15 tires.
