a 195/60/15 will work on a 5.5" rim, but I wouldn't go wider. you might consider
getting snow tires in 175/65/15 or 195/60/15 for now, though, and save up for some
nice light 16x7's with 205/50/16 Bridgstone S-03's or Goodyear F1 GS-D3's in the
spring. then you'd have excellent winter and excellent summer/fall/spring wheels/tires.
