Hi there,

What's the difference between 185/65/r15 vs 195/55/15?

I've acquired a set of snows with the 185 readings and it's rubbing in my wheel well with coilovers adjusted to the highest point which still is 1inch lower than stock on 952dr-integra.

If I get the 195/55/15 oem spec tire would this solve my 'rubbing' problem? And btw way.. Saw a place selling used Winter tires with approx 90% of tread for '195 / 55 / 15 NOKIAN HAKKAPELIITA - $320' includes mount & balance within the price? is this a good deal?

Thanks,

195-55-15 is the correct size for an integra...

185 are a narrower tire with a 65 meaning it a higher profile you will rub.

NOKIAN HAKKAPELIITA - $320'?? wow I paid $700 for my Nokians Hakkapelita 1 - 4 yrs ago.. thats a bargin.. the best tires you can buy, the only TRUE snow tires out there designed by the Fins in Findland and mandatory on their cars over there. I highly reccomend the best snow tires I ever owned.
