Default alternate tire size

Currently have 2008 XD with 195/60R16, way to expensive and few options. Can I replace with 205/60R16? Thanks!

sure can, 205/60/16 and 205/55/16 are both within about 2% speedometer difference, and we have plenty of clearance for the minor increase/decrease in overall diameter. 205/55 is the closest to original at a 1.2% difference lower, (59mph instead of 60mph), and 205/60 is about 1.8% higher than the original, (61mph instead of 60mph)

This is probably one of the best tools you can ever have for getting new wheels and tires, id suggest playing with it, and bookmarking it for future reference:

Default Great Find !

Hey Bob,

That's a Super Find, man !
Awesome.

Now what I was trying to figure out is such a breeze, and I can even have a graphic view of what a small change would look like under my fenders !

Thanks ! and also thanks from all the others who have looked, but not thanked you!
