Default different tire widths on my 1998 Honda Accord LX?

I got a flat tire a few days ago, replaced it with a used tire at the shop, but the tire they gave me is 195/65/15 while my other 3 are 185/65/15. Could this be a problem? My car has been a little wobbly since, but i'm not sure if it is related to this or not.

You should *never* have 2 different size tyres on the same axle.The "spacesaver" emergency spare wheels are for just that. An emergency.

yeah...not the best idea to mix tire sizes like they did, the tire they sold you is wider and taller than your other three, so depending where they put it on the car, yeah, your gona wobble, maybe pull even, your best bet now is to replace at least twp of the tires on your car...and make sure there all the same size
