Tires for 2002 Protege

Hi - I have a 2002 5-speed Protege that has the following tires mounted: P195/60R15. Two are new, and two are fairly worn. I have two other tires from another Protege that are: P195/65R15. Could these be used to safely replace the two worn tires?

welcome aboard and happy new year

should not be an issue. the ratio is 5% more, so the tire is slightly taller, so you will cover more distance with each turn of axle resulting in higher speed than what is shown in your not by much at all: 60mph speedo =62 mph actual

you can look this up in a search engine and find the same info, search for: tire size comparison calculator
