Replacement tire matching

Asked by Nov 28, 2014 at 12:08 AM about the 2005 Subaru Forester XS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A tire dealer put 205/R60 16 tires on the drivers side and 215/R60 16 tires on the passenger side. This doesn't seem right to me and am worried about possible issues. The 215's were on originally.  Any suggestions?

Looks like he screwed up, most likely the installer didn't double check the size when they pulled them from the rack, take it back and show them what happened, tires need to be matching sizes on today's vehicles. Stick with the 215's. It shouldn't cause a problem short term, but I wouldn't hit the freeway with it that way.
