Q: Wondering about tire swap 2011 Dodge Charger

asked by on

Would 215 60 r17 studded snow tires fit the rims i have right now the tire size i have right now is 215 65 r17 and i was wondering if i could still use them.

My car has 107000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello - yes, the snow tires in the size you mention will work just fine as a swap for your existing tires. Since they are a slightly lower "profile" tire (60 vs 65 aspect ratio), the speedometer will read slightly faster than it does today for the same road speed, but this will hardly be a noticeable difference.
