Will these tires fit on my Rims?

Hi. I have a deal in the process for a set f 4 195/65/15 Hankook Optimo H418 all season tires. Will these fit on my 15" steel honda rims?
Right now I have 185... on the front, and 195/60/15 on the back.

EDIT: My manual says the tires on the front/rear are 185/65/15 86H

Also on a second note, any one have anything to say about this brand or model of tire?

what kind of honda do you have?

it should fit, but your car will ride higher, and you will have more fat tires.

If your car is not lowered it will work fine , might have ever so slight rubbing at full lock , probably not though .
The difference here is so small , most people wouldn't even notice.
185/65/15 - 195/65/15 = 10mm wider , 5mm per side this is nothing! less than 1/4"
height wise 195 is going to be taller but only slightly (1/2") which equals a height increase of the car by a whopping 1/4" !

yes they will fit, the 185/195 is the width of tire, this is a very small difference, 10mm of difference. the 60/65 is the height of the tire, 5mm of difference, this difference is also very minimal. lastly the end number, in this case 15, is the rim size. you will not notice a difference in height unless you actually go up to the car the way it is measure it, then measure it again with the new tires on it.
