Hi, I just got a used 03 LX I4 and I dont know why the previous owner changed all 4 tires to 195/65 R15 instead of the original 205/65 R15. I dont think its a big problem for 1 size difference but just wanna ask if anyone has downsized tires like that and what effects it may cause for performance, gas mileage or safety. Thanks.

Are they winter tires by chance? Since narrower is better in the snow. They don't handle corners nearly as well. But I'd wear em out first and buy new ones in the original size.

They shouldn't be winter tires as Houston just has a mild winter and no snow at all. thanks for the advice, i wil justl ignore them and wait til they all worn out to replace.
