Does it matter to keep different set of tires for front and rear?

(2003 Mitsubishi Galant)
in West Hempstead, NY on August 07, 2012
My 2003 Galant ES has 195/65/R15 in the rear and 195/60/R15 in the front. When changing should I keep the same set of numbers in the front and rear or change to 195/65/R15 for all of front and rear.

YOU CAN MAKE ALL THE SAME AS LONG AS THEY CLEAR THE WHEEL WELL AND DON'T HIT WHILE TURNING OR GOING IN AND OUT OF DRIVEWAYS

You should not change the tire size from the original. The tire placard on door pillar or glove/center box will tell you the correct tire size on your car. A reputable tire shop will also be able to tell you the correct tire size. If you change the size it will affect your speedometer, ABS, fuel economy, handling characteristics and braking distance. Please replace all four tires with the correct size.
