Found a good deal on some new tires

I currently run 4 205/55/r16 from the dealer

The new tires are 2 205 and 2 215.

215's will fit in the rear correct?

You should not have a problem with the 215's in the rear. What is the brand of tire? Just make sure they are all the same tire.

Exactly the same 2 michelin energy mxv4 plus 205/55r16 and 2 michelin energy mxv4 plus 215/55r16

I have 4 michelin energy mxv4 plus 205/55r16 on there right now.

then my spare would even still be the same.

I've had a bad luck year in tires. 2 nails in 2 sidewalls (different tires) and a bubble from a mysterious non curbing when my wife used the car.

My luck in tires and curbs (and bad city streets commuting to Boston everyday) is the real reason I am still on 16s and not moved to 18s which would look so, so pretty!

:)

Why not just get the same tires all the way around?
Because I like asking dumb questions on public forums. :craig:

No I found thes 4 tires on Craigslist for oh about $400 cheaper than tire rack.

Just picked them up, they are brand freakin new... probably obtained by questionable means... but I didn't ask. :shhh:
