    Tyre Size Question?

    I have an 01 Astra Coupe 1.8XE. I've 195/60 r15's on it at the moment. My da is scrapping he's 00 vectra 2.2 which has 195/65 r15's(practially brand new tyres). Should I have a problem putting them on the astra. Haven't lowered the astra or done anything to the wheel arches.

    thanks,
    Dricco

    They will fit but the speedo reading will be out because the rolling radius will be greater than standard. You will be travelling faster than the speedo reads so run the risk of a ticket.

    The diff: In rolling radius is minimal.you will get a softer ride with the 65 aspect tyres.
