#1 of 5 Down sizing tires
Feb 29, 2008 (10:59 am)
I read on here that someone said that all cougars are the same and that you could change the tire rims. I have 16 inch performance on now and cant get snow tires for them ( if you know of any let me know), I would like to change them to the 15 inch rims. I called the mercury dealer they said go for it and I called sears and they said dont ever downsize. Did anyone ever do this? If so, how was the outcome? Thanks for any help.

Of course you can downsize. 205/65/15 you won't have a problem.

What are some other size tires that I can use on my Mercury? It's currently got 215-50-16 tires on it. I see that you are saying that you could use 205-65-15 what about 225-60-16, 205-55-16, etc.

It sounds like you are discussing two different generations of Cougars.
