    Hi

    Has anyone every run 155/60 tyres on 15'' rims?
    Its getting cold here in Scandinavia and those are the only spec tyres i can get hold off.

    Any advice is much appreciated.
    I have already studied this matter on this site but could not get any of the tyres people have used

    I thought that 14'' rims would hit the brakes on the front?

    I can't seem to find anywhere in Denmark that does the 165/60:(

    I have 14" rims and they absolutely do not hit anything, so no worries :D

    Uniroyal MS Plus 77 165/60 R14 75T - daekonline.dk

    These are the Uniroyal tyres, they are average quality and made by a subsidiary of Continental

    If you wanted to run 15" rims, you would have to get 165/50 r15 winter tyres, but they seem to be out of production :D

    You guys are bloody amazing
    Was going to buy 15'' rims and go for 175/55 continental tyres but your options sound much cheaper

    Thanks a bunch

    These are 100% correct, you would need exactly 5x14 ET40 rims with a 4x100 bolt pattern

    What pressure do you inflate them to?

    I've just put a set of 165/60 R14 on my Copen and I figure they should be about 31psi but no hard evidence that is the case.

    I inflate mine to 2,5 bar, which is 36 psi in medieval terms :D

    36 psi seems pretty firm, given that the standard 165/50R15 have a psi of 35.

    Not at all mate, you can put 10% extra on the recommended tyre pressure and it will benefit you with a better fuel economy. This way you also have a little safety buffer.
    Also, its still a 165 tyre, so pressure should be the same
