    Hi guys, new to the forum here.

    I have a Canadian base model 2013 Prius v that came with 205/60R16 tires. I have a set of snow tires but they're 205/55R16. They're just a hair over the industry standard 3% margin of change so I was wondering how the brakes would handle these.

    Thanks!

    As long as you swap the entire set, the car and sensors won't detect anything amiss.

    Should be just fine, but your speedometer and millage will be off by a corresponding percentage. Not a big deal, but something to be aware of. In the US you are supposed to disclose that when you sell the car.
