Changing tire sizes

#1
Hey everyone, I'm curious if I can put 195/70R14's on a set of 14's that currently have 195/60R14's without running into any problems. The wheels just look to small with tires that are currently on them.

Yep! Those should fit fine.

Let me ask a partially smartass, but serious question.
If the wheels already have a 195/60 series tire on it, just reasonably thinking, why wouldn't a tire with a slightly bigger sidewall (70 series) not fit?

The wheels just look to small with tires that are currently on them.
I would think the opposite, the wheels will look smaller with a larger series profile tire on them.

I meant they just don't fill the wheel wells. And my apologies. I have 5 sets of wheels I want to go from 195/60r15 to 185/55r15

Now that's different than your original question...

So now with the 15" wheel, you're dropping down in tire width and going with a slightly smaller sidewall.
