  2. Will a 205/70/15 tire fit on a stock steel 195/65/15 rim?? Enough clearance?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Have a stock B5.5 wagon. Am I able to fit 205/70/15s where there is currently 195/65/15s? Would there be any issue with clearance?
  3. 205/60/15 on a Wellington rim?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The inside of the gas cap says 195/65/15 (what I have right now) but I'd like to run a wider tire. Would 205/60/15 be ok? I've done a few calculations, doesn't seem like it would make to much of a difference.

  7. Getting hard to find 205/55/15 tires

    Volkswagen Passat Early B Platforms Discussion
    I went shopping for tires for my B4V which has aftermarket wheels and the optional 15" sized tires for TDI. Every place either had them in high performance (30k mi warranty), had to order them or just couldn't get them. Apparently the 55 series in 15" is considered high performance and I could...
  8. 205/55/15, will they fit

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Like the title shows, I have an opportunity to get some 205/55/15 tires inexpensively and I am wondering if they are going to fit on my 15" rims on my 2003 Passat. I wasn't sure if there was going to be fitment issues due to the lower profile. Any insight would be great. Thanks

    I have the chance to get these babies for a steal, but I am a bit worried about the width and plowing through snow. I know that skinny is better for deep snow and better mileage, but wtf, with a VR6 am I going to notice a big difference using these vs 205s? Also, any problems likely with tight...
