Question Can I put 195/60/15 tires?

I saw a set of used Honda 15" wheels with 195/60/15 tires for sale. Can I put these on my 2007 Honda Fit? I know that the Fit Sport uses 195/55/15, so not sure if these will fit- and how it would affect the ride, handling etc.?

The wheels look similar to the ones posted on this link, but are 15"

Those wheels will fit fine. The tires will be taller and may rub.

Here's a handy website for tire size comparisons

Those wheels are Integra LS mesh wheels with Honda center caps. It's the lightest 15 inch wheel Honda sells in our 4x100 bolt pattern. I have been torn between those and a set of RPF1's for a long time.

Default 195-60-15 on GD3 Fit

I ended up mounting 195-60-15 Nokian snow tires on my '08 this past winter, on rims that have the same offset as the OEM Enkei rims, 55. I had NO CLEARANCE OR RUBBING ISSUES AT ALL. I have Drag DR-24 rims on for the summer with OEM 195-55-15 tires and on really hard bumps I get a fender lip rub. OFFSET is the key. Those wheels/tires are BEAUTIFUL! If you don't want them, I'll take them!

Default Handling- ride 195-60-15

By the way on my OEM rims "55 Offset" is stamped right on the rim. See if it is on the Acura rims. With the taller tires the car actually felt very planted, and in winter it makes sense to have taller tires of the same width, for more ground clearance and more contact patch pressure. I had no issues with handling, and ride would be expected to be a bit more supple. And one more thing - I like the way 60's fill in the wheel well - makes the car look less anemic.
