Talk with a tyre dealer on this one as there are road regulations that you will have to comply with. 15 " wheels will fit your car but you will have to select a lower profile tyre to comply with regulations so you would be achieving any thing as to clearance. Discuss the matter with an "off road" shop as to suitable suspension modifications to get what you want

Want to put 215/65R 15"tinres on Sienna rims on to a 2010 Prius III

you intend fitting ***65r -15 tyres on the car
so there will be no difference in speedo readings or mileage readings because the critical measurements as the 65 ( side wall height and the rim size 15 remains the same
the other dimension --185, 195 215 are the tread width and require a rim of suitable width to sit the sidewalls correctly so that the tyres will not roll of during cornering
What you need to know is the offset of the rims for each car
the offset is the distance from the rim edge ( measured by a flat edge across the rim) to the face of the rim where it fits against the hub
the off set is measured as positive , negative and neutral
you will have to get a bare rim of each vehicle and measure that off set
if it is not the same , the rim can hit the brake callipers, hit the internal splash guard on full turn or place excessive load on the outer bearings in the hub or foul the mudguard edge on full turns and bumps get all the information first as a mistake can make the vehicle ******* on the road , loose you your insurance and subject you to a traffic infrigement

My tire size is 185/65 R 14. can I changed or put tire 195/60 R 15?

No ---not unless you put a 15" rims on the car. The tyre sizing reads like this
185 is the width of the rim from bead to bead in millimetres
the 65 is the profile height --- distance of the rim from the road surface
r is for radial
14 is the rim diameter in inches
now you can understand why a 15"tyre will not fit a14" rim

Tire size

Yes as long as u change the rims also not just the tires these numbers 195/60/15 195 is tire width 60 is tire height and 15 is rim size, most all Hondas will fit up to 215/35/18 with no rubbing issues on factory suspension ..... Every time the rim size changes u have change the height of the tire so it will fit some go as far as " stretching " the tire to allow larger rims or extreme offsets

Will a mastercraft P205/60R/15 fit my 1995 dodge caravan 6 inch wide stock steel wheel.

yes as long as the rim is a 15 inch rim what matters is the diameter not the width of the rim however you want to match the size of you tires as closely as possible as it will cause abnormal wear on your tires, brakes , and traction control to name a few if you cant match all four at least make sure to match the two in the front and try to keep smaller tires to the front and larger tires to the back

Can i use size 15 on the rim for my 1994 honda civic.

You can't put a 15 on a rim that is for a 14 inch tire................For example if you have 205-75R14 just for example you can't put a 15 inch tire on it unless they are for example 205-75R15...........................Hope this helps you out............Rims with same bolt patteron will work...................If Hot Rod in engineering can work.

Factoy tire size

The factory size is P185/65R14.
I have a Honda Civic and i cold Wisconsin winter use a set of Blizzak winter tires P185/65R14 on steel rims.
If ambient temperature warms up above 45F degree, I use a set of tires P205/45R16 Falken Ziex Ze-912, mounted on 16 inches aluminum rims.
Using all season tires is a good compromise too.

I have a 97 saturn sl that has 17" rims on it.I am

Figure out what it is, an SL1 being SOHC or an SL2 being DOHC. If it is a SOHC then it came with 14 inch rims and if it is a DOHC then it came with 15 inch rims. Once you know what it is then call around to local junkyards, or auto recylers if it sounds better, and tell them you need 4 rims of the right size. Rims usually cost about 20 bucks apiece used and any Saturn rim 91-20 will fit the car, with the proviso that they must be the right rim, being 14 inch or 15 inch. If you put the wrong size on, your speedometer and odometer will be way off and your transmission life with be greatly reduced. Then get yourself some regular tires to fit the rims and sell those stupid rims on craigslist to some dumb kid.

My 1994 civic dx has an ex gage cluster and the speedometer is off by 10-15 mph how would I correct this and keep the gage cluster it says my tire size should be 175 70r13 but I have 185 60r14 which is the...

okay,lets go to basics...1/.175 is the width of the tyre.2/.70 is the profile(that is 70mm from the wheel rim to the road).3/.13 is the width of the wheel rim.
So,you have 185(wider tread)60 (lower profile)14"(bigger wheels).you need to fit 35 profile tyres to get close to the same rolling radius to correct the speedo,the ride will be harder and the tyres are much more expensive,alternatively fit 13" wheels/tyres.
70/13 radius is the same circumferance as 45/14(25mm thinner).
simply put,if you measure the original wheel, road to top of tyre,then measure the ones fitted you are an inch to tall or 3.1/2" more around (approximately)please leave feedback...ta
