Originally posted by BigStone@May 20 2005, 02:53 PM The original tires for my 323i (2000) were: 195 65 R15
I bought new tires the same size, but when I came home I realized the installed tires were: 205 60 R15
Is this size is acceptable for my car, or I have to ask for the original size
You don't have a thing to worry about...Not even the speedometer. At most it will probably be about a half mile an hour difference (if that). You have basically a more expensive tire mounted that will give you a little better stability as it is a border line Low profile. Going from a 65 to a 60 you shouldn't notice a DRAMATIC difference in the height of the car but you are a bit wider though. My suggestion is leave on, you have a better tire.
