Tire size interchangeability or compatibility

I need to change the tires of my Hyundai Grace van. I am not very familiar with these tire sizes. All I see in the old tires are the following: P195/70R14 90H and I think these numbers and letters indicate the size of the tire.

I have 4 new tires with the following specs: 205/65R15 94S.

I want to know the basic difference between the two sets of tires and will it be alright to use the new set of tires for my van? Just share your opinion. I shall be grateful to you.

Thank you very much

    Tire rack has done a good job of explaining tire sizing. I think this link will help you a lot in assessing this issue. Just have a look.

    what you should get out of that page is that 15 tires do not fit on 14 rims.

    This means that your new tires will not fit on your rims - you have to buy new rims.

    There is the additional problem of the size of the fenderwell and whether there is enough room for the larger tires you now have - assuming you get rims that will fit both the tires and the vehicle.

    My suggestion would be to get tires in the size already on your vehicle. This assures that everything will fit.

    I hope the information which I have provided you will help you a lot in understanding the interchangeability and compatibility.
