    Default 205/55/16 vs 205/60/16

    i just got a set 16" winter rim and now looking for tires for my 2010 mazda 3 GT. I was that for some tires the size 205/60/16 is cheaper, so i was wondering will these tires fit or should I forget about the 205/60/16 and just stick to 205/55/16

    Thanks

    Your speed will be a little slower. Uses this one for tire size calculator

    205/60R16 is the size for a Speed3 and it's actually quite a bit bigger (I've seen both in person).

    Get the right size even if it's a bit more expensive.
