question about winter tires

I bought 195/65/R15 all winter tires last year for my cav. Since I don't have much cash to buy another 4, think I could use them on a 92 HB not lowered?

(I dont really care what it looks like, aslong as its safer than my bald summer tires)

If you have a set of 15" rims I believe your good to go.
Stock tire size for the 6th gen SIR was 195/55/15 so your speedo might be a bit off, nothing substantial though.

if u're riding about stock height and all, should be no problem...

i remember when i had my hatchback... i ride on 195/55/15 winter tires with somewhere 1 to 1.2" dropped... and it still clears 2-3 cms
if u're riding on stock height... 65 should clear i would say...
correct me anyone...

i was dropped 2 1/2 on H&r RACE SPRINGS and i was running 185/65R15's, and never had any true issues, minor rubbing on full lock turns... thats about it though.... i say go for it, actually the larger outside diameter tire will reduce the power to the ground, lessening spinning in snow as it is so that will help too
