I picked up a used set of 4 winter tires on steelies.

3 of the rims are 15x6 ET25, the other 15x6.5 ET 42. Tires are 195/65.

Clearances are fine, both inner and fenders. I'm just concerned about high speed handling and braking from both the wideness and differing offset of the oddball rim.

I'll change out if necessary, of course, but if the oddball can safely ride in the rear (FWD '13 Focus hatch) I'll leave be.

Thanks.

Just keep the oddball in back and don't be all speed racer in turns. Should really be no biggy if it's just for winter.

X2, keep it on the rear. Not much difference and the tire deform out of shape will make up for much of that. Myself I would probably run a couple more psi in that one tire.
