I have 205/60/16R size all season tires installed in my car. I want to change those to winter tires. However, I have 04 winter tires from my previous car which is 215/55/16R.
My car - 2015 Mazda 3
Can I use the same rim for both tire sets?
I have a the factory 18" wheel with a low-profile tire.
My question: Can I go to a 16" tire/wheel combo?
I'm considering passing the car on to my daughter and I can already see that I'll regularly be replacing the low profile tires as she navigates her first few years of driving... :)
Snow's hit NJ today and it was not fun driving on the stock yoko's :sad 1: slipped everywhere and also slid past a turn I was trying to make.:thumbsdown 1: and this was with just 1-3" of slush on the road. I'm now set on spending the extra cash to get a set of wheel/tires for winter use.
