Editorial Comment:

The information you have provided makes it difficult to clearly understand your situation, but my understanding is that you wish to mount a 195/65 R15 tire on a 16 inch wheel.

If that is correct, the short answer is NO. It is very dangerous to attempt to mount a different sized tire on any wheel. Your wheel is 16 inches diameter and your tires are 15 inch (R15). Because the tires are smaller than the wheel, I doubt you could get them to fit without a lot of force and you might even end up damaging the tires irreparably in the process.

If it were the other way around, and you were trying to put R16 tires on a 15 inch wheel, you might succeed in getting the tire over the wheel, but the mounting would be dangerous and could injure the person doing the work, or if they did succeed in installing the tire, chances are very good that the tire would come off the wheel when you are driving, possibly endangering the vehicle and its passengers.

In short you must always mount tires on the same sized wheels.
