    Hi, can someone tell me if the 165/60 R15 winter tyre can fit or not?
    This is the smallest tyre I can find in Sweden and there is no 4,5x14 wheel either.
    Thank you.

    You can also use 5x14 inch wheels with 165/60 r14 tyres

    I would not go for 165/60 r15 as they might scrape because they are too big

    As for the 165/60 r 14 tyres, I can find 75T or 79T, 79H and 81T...which one should I use?

    Well, how fast do you go? :)

    You can ignore the 75, 79, 81, that's the load rating and our car is light enough we're fine on any, Handbook says 73.

    The letter is speed rating, T is safe up to 118mph, H is safe up to 130mph.

    Whoever came up with the speed ratings had alphabetic problems, it goes N.... P, Q, R, S, T, U.....H, V, Z, W, Y

    Yes, it will fit.
    Recommended tyre pressure then is 2,7 bar (39psi).
