    Cool Tire dimension - swap

    I was lucky and found four free wheels with brand new tires. Bolt circle is correct 5x110, SAAB 9-5 2.0 SE -98, however tire dimension is a bit different.

    Current tires: 215/55 R 16.
    New tires: 195/65 R15.

    If I can use the new tires I'll save about 400. They are originally from an Opel. The SAAB is used by my girlfriend as a daily driver, she is a calm driver.

    Would it be advised to swap these wheels even though the tire dimension is a bit different?

    Tire diameter difference is pretty small at only 1.2% so that should be ok. 195/65 R15 is an approved tire size for the 9-5 so that should be ok as well.

    They will look pretty narrow on the 9-5 but will be just fine. And they are free!
