Default Tire question.

Usually I can answer my own questions...however I know almost nada about tire sizing so. Figured I would ask someone who did :-D

I am running 195/65/R15's on my PT.

Well they've turned to slicks haha So i need new tires. However I'm pretty short on $$ and they want close to $500 for 4 brand new ones.

Well a friend of mine has a ford mystique that he rolled a few times.

It is running 205/60/15's.......

Now i know theres like a one size up, and one size down rule where you can run other sized tires on a car......Can i run the 205's on my PT? With the rims from the 195's? He said I could but he had also had a few beers in him haha.

Point is he has 2 sets of these , 8 total and is willing to give them to me for free.

Thanks ;-D

Back in the day when I was young and poorer I used to score some excellent tires at the local junk yard on the cheap.

AWESOME! . Yeah he has 8 brand new tires in that size. Bought them for the murcury, then crashed it 3 days later. I like the free price haha, he's junking the car and they'll charge him $10 a tire if they are on or in the car so. WOOP free tires haha
