    15” tires fit a 15” inch wheel, 16” inch tires fit a 16” inch wheel. Suggest you cancel the order and see a tire shop. – Solar Mike Nov 10 '18 at 5:47

No 16 in tires won't fit on 15 in wheels. Change either tires or wheels. In cold conditions (snow) it's better to go with smaller size wheels, I suggest you to keep the 15 wheels and get 15 tires.

  • It is not a smaller diameter that helps in snow, but a smaller width : to help “cut through” the snow... – Solar Mike Nov 10 '18 at 7:08
  • @SolarMike I agree with you, generally 15" wheels are with smaller width than 16" wheels. Also the smaller the wheel is the less likely is it to bend in pot hole. Not to mention rough ride of bigger wheels. – AsenM Nov 10 '18 at 7:15
  • Rough ride? Difference between 15 & 16 hardly, 16 to 19 I agree – Solar Mike Nov 10 '18 at 7:17
