Asked by Sep 22, 2019 at 09:42 AM about the 2001 Chevrolet Impala FWD

Question type: General

Will these tires 215/65r16 on my car even tho my
tire size is 225/60R16

3 Answers


215 is the tread width in mm. 65 is 65% of that in side wall height , 65% of 215 vs. 60% of 225 , doable ,




The replacement tire is a bit taller, but not enough to affect the speedometer, braking, or ride. But the proposed tread width is nearly a half inch narrower and this probably isn't something you should do. You'll reduce traction when accelerating, and this will have a negative affect on braking: not a good idea.
