Re: crown vicky tires

They are narrower by 10mm which is just about 3/8", so it shouldn't make a huge difference unless you drive it hard through the corners. Are you happy with how it handles now with the 215's?

Sometimes tires of one brand will have a narrower (or wider) tread than a different brand of the same exact listed size, so there's a little leeway in what actually meets the road and the difference is negligible.

If you put the 2 different sizes in this calculator and you'll see what the difference makes. Tire size calculator
