In brief: It depends
The chances of a stone passing is related to the size of the stone, the roundness plays a roll, and other factors like a history of a ureteral stricture could effect the chances of a stone passing.
It has been said hat about 90% of stones 5mm or less pass.

Not everyone who has kidney stones is able to pass them. Factors that determine if a kidney stone can pass are the location of the stone and the size of the stone.
