Has anyone out there tried a set of 205/60/16's verses the original 225/60's?,there is a big difference in the width of the tire,almost 2 inches in the width of the tire which my buddy has a set on his 05 impala,after comparing my car to his,driveing his car in the harsh cold winter with lots of snow his 05 impala is a 100% better for traction ,stopping,better ride and way better on gas,i was more concerned about the gas mileage,as we swapped cars for the weekend i came to the conclusion that those tires are far better then the original size tires

i thought about doing that but worried about clearance. Any rubbing, especially on the front. Are they on the factory rims?

Are they on the factory rims?,they are narrower,make the car ride a 100% better,their-- the same height,no rubbing,height is still the same,the brakes are wicked now with a smaller tire ,way better on gas,now my gas hand hardly moves at all,yes they are on factory rims,less tire on the pavement made a big difference to my impala verse's the 225/60's good choice of tires
