There is someone nearby selling 4 UltraGrip Winter tires 195/65r15 on steelies for $150 (Going to try to talk him down if I go to him). I was wondering if they would work for my 2013 Cruze? I believe the tires are smaller, but they would only be for winter anyways. Looking up the size, it seems that the size for the 2016 ls model Cruze.

They would be 1" shorter than what the Cruze came with. Not sure if the bolt pattern would be the same though.

The bolt pattern is the same. I just usually get the stock size tires. So I wanted to make sure there wouldn't be any issues from me running these for the winter. Thank you though.

Using the specs from Tire Rack and assuming you have FR710's (16") diameter, the Ultra Grips, in this case are 7.9" wide, the 710s are 8.7"
The UGs are 6" wide tread, 710s are 7.2".....UGs are 25.2" diameter, 710s are 26.1.....UGs are 829 revolution per mile, 710s are
801 revs. p.m.

So, the car will lose a half inch of ground clearance, the speedo (and odo) will read a bit high. In general a skinnier tire is better in unpacked snow, worse on hardpack or ice. Naturally, dry handling will suffer.

The 'Will they work' question.....yes, as long as you adjust your driving style and stay out of deep snow. A half inch of ground clearance sounds small......till the floorboards hit hardpack.

Good luck,
Rob
