Tyre size for 16"

Hi All

Has anyone tried to fit 205/55/16 tyres on the 16" 6.5 alloys?

Standard is 195/55/16, but the ones in 205 is more accessible (Less Expensive)

Thanks in advance

To keep the speedometer accurate it would need to be 205/about 52/16 so not possible.
With 205/50/16 speedometer would over-read. 205/55/16 would under-read.
