with the 205 60 16 when the speedo says 60 you will be actually going 60.9 MPH. The computer will adjust for the fuel differences which will be minimal. The ride will be more plush and car will ride 4/10" higher. The stock tire diameter is 25.3" and the 205's are 25.7" The price is right too!!!!! They will work just fine Norm "Michael Hudson" <> wrote in message > Greetings. I've a '02 9.5, which calls for tires sized 215/55-16.
