Alloy size / Tyre size? - Kimion
Just a quick question,
Will 185/55 R15 tyres fit on 7Jx15" alloys?
The alloys have 195/50 r15 tyres on at the moment, and I've looked everywhere for this info but nothing can confirm!
Can anyone help?

Yes, they'll fit with no problems.

According to the tyre converter on
Your 195/50 R15 tyres can be replaced by 185/55 R15 tyres without any problems.
So assuming the 195's were correct for the wheels concerned to start with then all should be ok.

Well yes, they will fit.

Looking at the Toyo convertor (the full URL is ) there is a difference of 9mm.

The 195/50s are 577 mm round, the 185/55s would be 586mm. It's not a huge difference but unless you're trying really, really hard to save money, I would keep the size the same, particularly on the same axle.

Thanks for the replies.
I've bought a set of 185/55 for my standard steel wheels a couple of months ago, and a old friend is now selling his 7"x15" alloys that come with 195/50 tyres. So just needed to know if they fitted.
Thanks again
