Car Tire Size Question

I have an 2005 Altima 2.5S Extra.

Standard size is 215/60/16.

My buddy has new all seasons from his old car which are 225/60/16.

Would this fit on my car ? Is it dangerous to drive with them on ?
Im gonna use them in the summer as i just bought michelin xice2 for the winter.


Thanks for the advice as always

those tires will fit.....but the trade off is...you will lose gas milages, speedometer will be slighty off and the auto insurance may not give you a full claim if you got into an accident.

I think it is best if you stick with factory size...unless you have a side toy that you just use as an ocasional driving vehicle

Find a used set of winter tires, that'll be good for now.
