Default Re: Possible to downsize tyres from 195/60/R15 to ???

Best option would be to get the new ZXi size that is 185/65-15.

A dealer is trying to push me 195/55/R15 Goodyear NCT for 4k per tire. Are they a good size for the swift. Also are they any good. Finally does the price look good.

Size OK, Good price for the size but bad tires.
Better to spend a little more and have peace of mind.

Bumping up an old one here.
I am looking to downsize the wheels on my Tucson. She is currently on 235/65 R 16.
I want to get 15" wheels, and tyres specced 255/70 r 15. This gives me an extra inch of sidewall, keeping the diameter of the whole thing the same. Is this suggested? Or even doable??

First thing to check is clearance between brake system and 15" rims.
If there is no issue, then you may consider downsizing.
255s would be an overkill for Tucson.IMO

Note : Dynamics of the car may change drastically after downsizing.
