Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
The difference between 205-60-15 and 205-70-15 tires is that the sidewall is a little thicker on the 205-70-15's, in which makes what msapp12 said accurate. For your car you can fit 195-65-15, 205-60-15, and 215-60-15 tires. Stock tire size for that car is 195-65-15, but the only difference between the three of the sizes I mentioned is the width of the tire. Something to check after getting new tires is your alignment. Make sure that it is straight, as well as make sure that none of your wheels are bent when you have the new tires installed. If either of those are present, it will cause bad uneven wear on your tires causing you to buy new tires more frequently. Plus as a routine maintenance, have your tires rotated and rebalanced every 4,000 to 6,000 miles that way they wear evenly. If you are fortunate to have a Discount Tire, or America's Tire located near you, I would highly recommend paying them a visit and explaining to them your problem, and they will be able to assist you.

These tires will not work properly on your vehicle. They will probably fit under there and not rub but there is a possibility of them rubbing on the strut towers. They will cause your vehicles speedometer to read improperly. You will probably feel the car handle differently too. As long as they don't rub you can use them but they are not designed for your vehicle. Good luck.
