I don’t have the money to replace a tire with a new one right now.
However, I have a friend who has a few used ones laying around that are worn, but in good condition otherwise.
My car uses 215/65/R17
And my friend has 220/65/R17’s
Would I be able to use them?

I am aware that using wrong tire size can have effects on your speedometer.
