    I know lots of info has already been covered here on the topic of winter tires, but I haven' seen anything regarding 195/60R15. I have a set of these with one season on them that came off my '05 Focus that I traded when I picked up my FiST.

    This tire has a rolling diameter of 615 mm, compared to the stock 595 mm. I have found confirmation that 215/45R17 (625 mm) don't rub, so I am assuming these will fit just fine. I'm curious if anyone else is running this setup, as I really don't want to sell them and buy a new set.

    I ran 185/60r15 on stock suspension and there was still a decent bit of room for a taller sidewall. You should be fine

    Ran that size tire on the Fiesta Movement ST for a few weeks while I waited on another set of snow tires. No issues. As for 215/45 17, that is pushing the limit. I tried that size on a 2010 EU Fiesta and found it was scary close to the bumper cover when the wheel was turned. Even the 215/40 17 is technically too tall to work, but I haven't had any issues with it.
