Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi - I know the size tires needed are 165/80TR15.  But am having a hard time finding a retail outlet that carries them in store for mounting, etc.  Can 175s be used?  Or??

Thanks-

You should be fine with the slightly larger tires. Most stores (Sears, for example) can give you a list of what other sizes are acceptable without further modification.
