Tires Question

I own a 07 Civic LX Sedan

The tire recommendation is

205 55 16

But can I put on

195 65 15 (Winter Tires)

Instead

And will it damage the car?

And what about the breaks, will it be less effective?

Thanks

Short answer: Yes, it will work.

Next time, please use something like:

Thanks but I kind of knew it will work apparantly because 205 55 16 and 195 65 15 tires have about the same diameter, but since its a 15 inch rim I don't know if it will fit the breaks or damage it when installing perhaps. I was mostly asking

- Will it damage the car?

- What about the breaks, will it be less effective?

- Have anyone put on the 195 65 15 before on their Civic

- Will it damage the car? No unless inflicted by your own poor driving. The speedometer will not be accurate because you've changed the rotation frequency

- What about the breaks, will it be less effective? unaware of whether taking breaks while driving are effective or not solely based on changing your tire size , no scientific research has been done on such a retarded topic.

- Have anyone put on the 195 65 15 before on their Civic ? Yes but they probably didn't live to tell their tale

1. Brakes

2. There will be little to no affect on braking capabilities, possibly a slight improvement.

3. No, what could possibly be damaged?

4. What Jgresh said.
