Firstly, It depends on the width of your rim, a 195 is typically best suited to a 7" rim whereas a 215 is typically suited to an 8" rim. If 195 was the stock tire size then it is most likely a 7" rim and a 215 will fit width wise but will stick out more and may rub on your inner fenders if there isn't enough clearance. As for a 195/60 compared to a 215/ 60, the tire is around an inch larger in diameter which will cause your speedometer to need to be recalibrated. If you got a 215/55/15 it would only be .1 inch larger which would keep your speedometer readings nearly the same.

Can I use P195 60 R15 tires instead of P215 60 R15 tires?

Can you? Yes, you can but I would not recommend it. By doing this you will decrease the diameter of the tire/wheel by 1". This will cause your speedometer read 2.3 mph too fast at 60 mph. Your engine will also turn 32 rpm's more at 60 mph, which will cause your vehicle to use more fuel and get less mpg. If you want to change the size to a narrower tire then go with a 195/65-15 which would be almost the same diameter. Or if you wish to go with a wider tire then a 225/55-15 will work well.
