Going to depend on what rim you have. If it's stock 15 x 5.5 I think 205 is likely too wide.  I think 6" wide rim could be minmum and your speedo will be out, you will be travelling faster than indicated by the speedo.

Error is not as bad as I thought, +2% but rim needs to be 6 inch

^ What he said.
Car would be a bit floaty too.

I have been using these for the last two sets of tyres, granted they are on 6" alloys, speed is spot on at 70 and 80 kays, at 100 indicated 98 actual.

Go for it. I use my GPS readout as a speedo anyway. :victory:
