    Hello,
    I bought my Copen in August but now I have to put winter tyres or "all weather". The problem is that I cannot find tyres on the suggested size, i.e. 165/50/r15. One tyre shop suggested me in putting 155/60/r15. Do you have any suggestion?
    Thank you.

    You could also run 165/60 R14 on 4.5x14 wheels, there should be plenty of winter tyres and all weather tyres to choose from.
    There are no all weather tyres in 165/50 R15.

    If you drive sporty you should definitely use summer/winter tyres

    Ok thanks! I will check this possibility as well, more costly though as I will need the smaller wheels.

    If you want to run summer/winter tyres you need a second set of wheels anyway and the 14" alloys are cheaper
