Question from visitor, 08/02/2013 :Need new tyres for FWD Subaru Impreza 1996. Current tyres are 185/65 R15, tyre placard shows 175/70 R15.
Should I stick with existing or go back to the original?
Considerations are rolling resistance and whether the cars gearing is affected?Thanks.

Hello,

Thank you for your question :)

We can't confirm the tyre size that you can fit on your vehicle since we don't know the engine type of your Subaru Impreza.

We would advice you to visit this page, search tyre dimension by vehicle, choose your engine type and you will find a list of all the approved tyre sizes.

We always advice to fit the dimension defined by the manufacturer.
