    195 on a 6.5 is perfectly fine, in fact thats the recommended size. you'd have no issues running that wheel/tire combo, sounds like America's tire just wants you to buy new tires from them. you should have no doubts that it'll fit

    I've had my wheels on since November of last year. They are 15 x 7. I swear I get better gas milieage because they are lighter than stock. Plus the car handles way, way, way better than the stock skinnys. See more information below.


    Wheel Brand Advanti

    Wheel Model 79B STORM S1

    Wheel Weight (preferably from a scale, but manufacturer weight is ok) My installer said 11.5 pounds per rim. I cannot find anything on the internet that says anything about weight though. I may not be looking hard enough. I haven't had them long enough to see if there are differences. Just on the ride home from work, I think I am getting a few miles better but it's hard to tell until I take a longer trip. Stay tuned.

    Size 15" x 7"

    Offset Offset: 35 Backspace: 5.375

    Tire Size Stock tires 175/65R15 There doesn't appear to be much stretching at all. Looks great.

    Tire Pressure Monitors My installer just used the monitors from my stock wheels. Works just fine

    Difference felt in ride quality (if any) no difference, I think the handling feels more planted due to the wider rims

    Price Paid $750 mounted balanced including tax. I used the same tires that I've had on the car

    Fitment Issues none at all.

    Can anyone let me know if this will work. I've got a 2018 Prius C. I have wheels that are 15X8 offset +20. I want to run a 205/50/15" tire. Will I have fitment issues ?

    yeah, you'll rub unless you put your car on stilts.

    This is all new to me. I've recently replaced my 2012 Prius C tires and rims with aftermarket tires and wheels. My rear end bottoms out all the time now. What can I do to prevent this? Someone said something about putting a spacer

    We need to know your the size of the wheels and tires and necessary specs like offset.

    define bottoming out? are your shocks hitting the bumpstops or are your tires hitting the fenders? shocks on stops = bottoming out, as is scraping car body to pavement. neither have much to do with tire/wheel choice. tires hitting fenders = rubbing, and then we need all the info aforementioned. unless you're bottoming out by slamming the fenders onto your tires, which in that case someone should have done more hw (and still considered rubbing)
