Front tires are 205 instead of 185

Thu Jul 23, 2020 2:46 am

I have a question guys. I bought a 2016 spark ev and I noticed that the front tires weren't squealing like my 2014 with 185 tires when I floor it at a light. I looked at the tires tonight and they look brand new. It looks like the dealer put new 205 tires on there instead of the 185. It has plenty of grip and when I floor it I lose no traction. Should I leave it or will it cause damage to the rims or some other problem. They work amazing I must say.

When you put all 4 tires the same is called that your spark tires are square.

There is not problem unless the 4 tires are the smaller ones. In your case is ok
