Default Want wider tires on my stock 15 rims

I have a 2003 ,I like the look of the wider tire on a PT Cruiser, now it is a 195/65/15 . Will I loose winter traction increasing the width and how far can I go.

Exclamation Re: Want wider tires on my stock 15 rims

I am guessing You could prob fit a 215 50 on there, depends on the width of the stock rim.

I think discount tire has a tire calculator on their website, you input the year, make and model and it tells you what will fit

Yes.
I would put tall, narrow snow tires on your steelies, and get some wide tires for Summer

I second that ! My 195 winter tyres on the PT have lots more grip in snow tham my 225 winter tyres on my Civic. I will be buying 205 tyres for the next winter.

Can't put too wide of a tire on stock rims. Stock rims are pretty narrow.
