    They will of course fit but this is not an acceptable swap. You must never go over or under 3% of the OEM size. The 205/55-16 tires are 6.58% smaller in overall diameter. Your speedometer will read 4 mph fast. Fuel mileage will suffer and handling and braking will be effected. Unacceptable swap under any circumstances.

    They will fit your rims, but they are of smaller diameter than your current tires. May cause problems with your speedometer and will also reduce the ground clearance under the car.

      Plus, it might look goofy with undersized tires.
