I don't see any big problems here. You're dropping from 195/70
profile to 195/60QR14 - so they're a little smaller outside diameter,
more revolutions per mile, and the speedometer will go a bit high. It
says 60 and you're actually doing (guessing) 57 or 58. Do a measured
mile or use a GPS to confirm by how much.
They may be slightly wider when mounted, if your car has tight
clearances now the wider tire might rub on a fender liner with the
front wheels turned at full lock. You have to get under and look.
Check that the load ranges are roughly the same - If in doubt,
compare the tire weight rating to the Gross Axle Weight Rating /2 or
go to a truck scale and get axle weights loaded the way you drive.
And go back to Bridgestone for the load/inflation chart covering the
Blizzak's, being slightly smaller tires you will need to run the air
pressure slightly higher than what's printed on the car tag.
Going from an H speed rating to a Q is probably irrelevant, since we
don't have any autobahns around offering wide-open cruising. As long
as you stick to the DeFacto US Speed Limit of 10 over posted or 75 MPH
(whichever is lower) you'll never have a problem there.
