Default snow tire fitment

sorry for the stupid question, but can i mount 205/60/16 tires on my stock WRX rims? i've been trying to sell my car without much luck, so i guess i might as well get some decent tires for the snow.

thanks,
Eddie

The OEM size is 205/55r16.

The 205/60r16 are about 0.7" (3%) taller, which isn't too much. If you're not lowered than you should be alright. Your speedo and odo will run slow and you'll probably notice your accelleration feels slower with the taller tires.
