Hi, I'm new here (but not new to forums in general).
I did read the tire sticky and did a search as well, but I'm still not 100% sure on this, so I figured I'd ask:

I've got a 2005 dodge neon sxt (all stock).
Stock tire size is P185/60/R15.

I'm needing new tires.
A relative gave me a set of almost new tires off of a late 90's ford contour.
....they are 2 sizes larger..... P205/60/R15
Money's tight and I'd like to be able to use these if I can.

Will P205/60/R15 tires fit/clear/be okay to use?

It's always been my understanding that you can go up or down 2 tire sizes and be okay.
I seem to recall running some tires like this (size) on the back once, but never the front.

Thanks in advance for the help.

It'll be really close. I was running 205/55/16 on my R/T with barely any clearance with tokico blues. Not sure if the perch is any higher than stock. but if its the same, you should be fine.

205/60/15 will rub without using spacers.

Thank you. I was hoping for a different answer, but at least now I know. I had found a post by you saying they would rub, but then found another post by you saying that you ran that size (in the winter?)......so that confused me a bit.

Again, thank you both for the replies.

I did run that size in the winter (thanks for searching thumbup ) but I was on coilovers already. I let my buddy have my winter set-up for his Neon, and they rubbed his struts. I didn't even think about that since it isn't an issue with coilovers.

Stock wheels/offset? I would be surprised if you weren't rubbing the inside tread against the perch at least a little.
