As I mentioned in my other post, I had a flat on Saturday, and the tire got wrecked, so I need to replace it.(Right rear) I have another tire/wheel available, but it's a slightly different size. Mine are P205/65R15's, and the other one is a P205/70R15 winter on a slightly different rim.
Assuming the rim fits, would it be O.K. to use for now, until I can get a proper replacement, or would it be better just to use the temporary spare? I won't be able to get a new tire for a couple of weeks, at least, so my thought was to use the other tire, if possible.
The other wheel is from a Pontiac, and has a non round center hole, almost 5 pointed. I am also aware of the possibility of the offset being wrong as well, and not fitting over the rear calipers. If it won't fit physicaly, I won't force it.
I don't know anyone here that will switch out the rims, either. Most major auto repair comanies don't/won't do that unless you buy a tire from them.
Thanks for any input.
