go to www.tirerack.com, enter your cars model year and it will tell you what fits. Be prepared that if you switch to larger wheels with very thin tires it will affect your ride and handling, and those thin tires make flats happen more easily as well as rim damage when you hit potholes.

Yeah, 17" will stiffin up the ride, but if that is what you are looking for then it will work. Conversion size is 225/45R17

Using the one plus method to keep the same outside tire diameter, take the 195/65/15. The next one plus step up would be 205/55/16 then 215/45/17 then 225/35/18 then etc. There will be a point where the wheels/tires will be too big your vehicle. Best of Luck.

they'll fit but most likely will rub on your wheel wells when you turn...I've never seen a low profile 17" tire anywhere near 195 mm wide
