I am currently running Yokohamas 195/55 15's. They are at the 1st level wear indicator [meaning their winter performance should be done] and indeed they feel more like all seasons now.

I found a kick a$$ deal on a set of no name 195/50 15's which I already bought for next season. I just have to figure out a way to raise the front end 1 inch. I knife every 5+ inch windrow of snow with the undertray. Luckily, no undertray explosion like last season. Phewfffff!

I currently have snow tires on my 07 Fit sport with 14" steel wheels with 45mm offset. I'm looking to replace my car with a 2017 or 2018 Fit and it looks like the steel wheels will bolt right on with no issues. Thanks for this thread.

I'm not sure about the offset, but your 07 Fit tires will work. Also certain Mini Cooper tires will also work. I use 14" steelies for winter tires and hey work very well.

Thanks for your reply.

According to the website looks like it's close enough:
