    Default New Tyres

    Can I replace my current 195/65/15 with new 205/65/15 for Mazda 3 2007 sedan 2L?

    You could, but that's going to be a bit of a tall tire. Maybe look into a 205/50/15 or 205/55/15 instead, if its the 205 width you want.

    Just looking for a broader tyres instead of the stock ones. I think 205/55 would do the trick for better handling with slightly increased surface area. Thanks!

    You want to keep the new diameter of the wheel/tire combination within approximately +/-3% of the old, otherwise your speedometer will be inaccurate.
