Hello,

I am able to get new winter tires for a really good price but Iam not sure about the size since they are not the same size.
The tires I can get are 215/65 R16 but i normally use 215/60 R16.

I know because Of tthebigger side wall the sspeed - o - meter will run for example at 102km/h
While you are doing 100km/h for real but the question I have is;
will the tire be too big and touch the car?

Canadian tire says that it iisn't a big difference but it might still go wrong

(Sorry about the spelling errors. My phone made up hhisown language)

Thank you.

Your speedometer will read slower than you're moving, but if you can turn the wheels and see anywhere with less than half an inch of space, then no. You won't have a problem. A quick guess on stock suspension and wheels, you should be fine with fit. Your speedometer will just be about 3% slower than actual speed moved.

I also have some 215-65 r16 winter tires I can put on but they say it will rub...
Is this true ? Anyone tried this ?
Thanks

We used to have a minivan that had 215/65r16 tires. I can assure you they are significantly bigger than 215/60r16 tires. Just get the correct size tires. Tires in the correct size are dirt cheap already.
