P195/55R15 tire
 
will P195?55r15 tire fit my ford focus. I waited to late to by snow tires and the only size I can get is P195/55R15. My focus is a 2000 ford focus ZX3 with P195/60R15.

I moved this to the proper section for you. Moved to "Wheels, Tires, Brakes & Suspension". The answer to your question is, yes they will fit your car. It might knock the speedometer off a little bit. Probably less than 1mph so nothing really to worry about since those are just going to be winter tires.

They would be a little short for my liking - about 3/4" shorter in total height. I use 195/65 which is about 3/4" taller than stock to help the body stay out of some of the snow.

I use 195/65 to lower highway engine speed just a little. There's about 1 1/4 inch clearance from the front plastic fenderwell. Speedos off about 2 mph.

Ya, I went with P195/60r15. I had to drive 2.5 hours to get the tires. I did not realize that this size was so popular. Not having snow tires was not a option. Big difference with them.
