You can but you will most likely experience bottoming out on the rear of your car and also hard steering will cause the tires to rub on the inner fenders. It will also slow your speedometer down by 5 mph.

I changed 1 of my valve sensor so i need to no how to reset the tpms light


By operating the tire pressure warning reset switch, the tire pressure warning ECU can be set to issue a warning at an inflation pressure that corresponds to the standard pressure of tires .Therefore, you must set the warning threshold to the proper value in order to comply with the local regulations .Operate the tire pressure warning reset switch only after the inflation pressures of all tires have been adjusted on the vehicle.To initialize the system, press and hold the tire pres- sure warning reset switch for 3 seconds or longer with the ignition switch in the ON position. When the system receives the
initialization signal, the warning light blinks 3 times (1 second on, 1 second off). During initialization, the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter measures the inflation pres sure of the tire, and registers the signals that are transmitted into the tire pressure warning ECU at a frequency of once per minute. The initialization process is completed when signals from all the tires have been received. It takes a few minutes .

185 75 r15 to 205 70 r15 possible?


The 185 75 series will have a taller sidewall than the 70 series but the 205 will have a wider tread and be a bigger tire overall. Stand them side by side to see their height difference then check and see if one will rub anywhere up front with your wheels turned in each directions. If you have adequate clearance, I see no problem other than your speedometer will register a slightly slower speed when using the larger tires.

You are ok with that. The numbers are
Xxx tire width
Xx is profile
R is rim size
Changing the profile is what throws speedometer off

I have a 2005 nissan sentra. Tire size is 195/60 R15. I have the chance to get 2 195/65 R15 tires at a good price, and want to put them on the back, keeping the 195/60's on the front. Will this be OK? Some...


Hi!

195(width in mm)/60(sidewall height in % of width) R15(rim diameter)

This means, a 195/60 R15 rides lower than a 195/65 R15 tire. Imagine how it would look like when you put these different tire sizes on one car. It can be done but the car will be unbalanced both mechanically and aesthetically. Remember, your car was not designed for different front and rear tire sizes unlike some sports cars.

A 2005 model will most like come standard with ABS as with most cars produced year 2001 onwards.
Just buy 1 tire size for your car. If you wish to change to another tire size, change all the tires.

Good luck!

Mixing tire sizes


You can replace, but not mix. All the tires on the car needs to be the same size for traction control and ABS system. Having two different size tires on the car will cause problems. Just keep them all at the same size P215/60R15 or P205/65R15 only.

I'm not sure if my tire fit on my car,not the same size...


Even though you should always have a matched set, the size difference is about 1.33% smaller or around an inch and a half, total diameter. Just keep that tire in the rear so the drive wheels are the same size and you should be fine.
