The stock size on the car would be one of two sizes. Either a 195/60/15 or 205/50/16. The first size was mounted on all cars with steel wheels and some with 15" alloys. The second size was for all the 16" alloy equipped cars.

I believe the ZX4 SE's all came with the 195/60/15.

The crucial thing here is we really need to know exactly what the wheel size you have is. Then we can recommend the correct size. Websites don't even list any tires in the 205/50/14 size. It would be a very strange size.

My bad. The correct size is 205/50/16 of the tires I have on the car now (all 4 tires).

On the driver door it says that the tires should be 195/60/15.

Would winter tire size 195/60/15 fit on the rims that I have now (205/50/60 tire size now)? I am guessing there is no problem to put 205/50/16 winter tires on the car I find cheaper than 195... right?

Also, How do I know how much thread is left on the tires? I am planning to buy used winter tires.

PS the car in question is a used car bought from a dealer a few months ago.
