So it's a 2013 cabriolet passion.
I'm getting at least new back tires tomorrow. I'd appreciate opinions and feedback.
Is there a larger size tire I can get without getting a lift kit? All terrain preferably.
Walmart seems to have deals on the same size... the only place that's smart certified on my island is Mercedes and they're way to expensive.

195/50R15 and 175/55R15 came with those wheels if I'm not mistaken.

You had the "3-spoke" wheels right? I have those too...
Fronts are 165/60/R15
Rear are 195/50/R15

I had a new set about a year ago from Discount tire, and the only MATCHING set was Continental brand.

I'm pretty sure the 3 spokes originally came with 175/55R15 up front. The other optional wheels came with 165/60R15 up front. Check on your door sill please? Should say the correct size there. (I guess I could be wrong but I'd be surprised)...

I had the original set of Continental tires when I bought the car...sizes were the same as the door tag, and that is what I bought (Continental brand) which was the only brand that had a matching set.

Thanks.

When I was ordering mine there was information that said those wheels came with the 175s up front. I wanted the extra 10 mm so bad for extra stability but I really wanted fog lights instead of LED DRLs. Information on the 3 double spoke wheels that I ended up optioning and the other option were not clear, but the only way to get those 3-spoke wheels were with the style package...

I believe the safe bet is 185/60R15. Our venerable Miss Mercedes uses this size if I recall correctly with minimal, if any, rubbing.

The Walmart app is sadly lying. If you go to check out you'll see a surprisingly large shipping fee.
