Q: Tire size compatibility for my Honda Civic

asked by on

I have a 1997 Chevy Cavalier that broke down on me after I got got 4 new 195/65R15 tires for it. I'm wondering if I can put them on my Honda Civic so I can get some use out of them.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello, thanks for writing in to YourMechanic. 195/65R15 is the base tire for the 2011 Honda Civic. There were also 16 and 17" tire options offered. If yours has the 15" wheels, the tire should be compatible.
