Costco will not sell you a tire size that didn't originally come on the car...but there is a way around it. When I recently bought tires from Costco for my Mirage, I went in and said "I need tires for my 2015 Chevy Spark." They type that into their computer, and up pops 185-55-15. When the tires arrive at Costco, I leave my car at home and I just take the wheels in. They install the tires and I take the wheels home and bolt them on my car.

Go price these same at Discount Tire (installed with road hazard "certificates") and see how the above prices compare. I've heard that Discount Tire will price match Costco...but have never tried it.
I have been running 185-55-15s on my car for the last 90K miles. I just bought my next set of Ecopias...but this time I went to 185-60-15s. I did so because they're less expensive, more common, and slightly taller than 185-55-15s. I haven't personally installed these on my car yet, so I'm not ready to officially recommend them. But a few other people on the forum have already been running this size with no issues so I'm not worried about it.
