When I put my new 16" wheels and tires on I was farely pleased with the results (though I would have liked a more low profile tire.) But then I was cruising around some member websites and I found smachan. His MX6 has 16" probe gt wheels with tires that look much smaller.


These are mine:


My tires are size 205/55-r16. Is that the correct size for or cars with 16" wheels? Or did smachan just put on the wrong size, I don't want to mess up my speedometer but I would like more low profile tires. Maybe the people that put mine on just messed up? Anyone who has any thoughts/comments please help. Thanks.

Yep, 205-50-16's are almost an exact match for the stock 195-60-16's. It's somewhere about 0.5% off, which isnt noticeable. I did the calculations before I ordered my rims/tires (which should be here thursday! woo hoo!) :)

thanks guys... Do you think that having bigger tires screws up my speed/odometer much? I wonder if I would have grounds to get a refund on those from the store I bought them? Any ideas?
