Hey, I have a stock Cobalt LS, 2-door and I'm sure you all know that stock they came with p195/60r/15's on and I am wondering if 205-65-15's will work or will they be too lage? Will there be and rubbing/scrapping?
Thanks

They shouldn't rub, but your speedo will be off by a little bit. On my winter tires i went with 205/60/15

I didn't get them wider because i thought it was better, that size was just cheaper.

There is the issue I would rather the speedo read slower than my actual speed rather than faster. But with a lower sidewall and the way I sometimes drive I would be less likely to roll a tire.

Well use that tire size calculator i posted on page one. with 215/55 you are almost spot on to stock rotational speed. just slightly faster like you want. Plus you will not roll a tire unless it is low anyways..

I have had friends roll tires in autocross with good pressure. the 215/60 was the closest to stock of any of the sizes.


Edit, I might be wrong, whats the stock tire size on these. 195/65 or 195/60?

The 205/65/15 will be too big if the stock size is 195/60 but would be ok if stock is 195/65. It is recommended to stay within 3% overall size of the original tires.

The stock size is 195/60/15

You will have no problems with that choice your speedo will read slightly slower (60 on speedo @ 60 mph) but thats hardly even noticeable.. THat is the best choice in tires for 17's or you could go with 225/40/17 for a little wider tread.
