205 65 R16 tires
Made a bunch of phone calls today and located a set of local Bf Goodwrich winter slalom 205 65 R16 tires. They are leftover 2009 tires and are studdable unlike the new BFG slalom's. They are charging me 115$ a tire and 16$ a piece to studd them. 612$ taxes in all 4 installed.
I found a calculator somewhere online that basically said the 205 65 r16 tire is 0.38" larger in diameter then the stock 215 60 r16 tires. I know there will be a slight difference in the speedometer but I don't care, just wondering if there is enough clearance for a taller tire.
Tall and narrow is great for snow and ice, interested to know what the limits are for the 4th gen Altima's.
thanks in advance for any info on running this size or larger winter tires.
