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

Shouldn't it be 55/16 to keep the running diameter, and avoid speedometer inacuracy ?
Why is that?

205 vs 195 has nothing to do with the rolling height of the tyre, only the width..

Can't really see why the width parameter has anything to say?
Auch stupid me.

All these years I never recognized that it was a percentage :eek:

Makes sense now ;)
