I have a 2002 Impreza RS and the correct tire size is 205/55/r16. I have some winter snow tires that are mounted on rims and 195/65/r15. Can I use these? Will they cause harm to my vehicle?

The second set of tires is slightly taller and a little narrower but they should work as long as the wheel offset is about the same and the wheels clear the brake rotors. Make sure they are worn evenly as Subaru's are notorious for blowing up the AWD system with tires that are slightly different sizes.
