Hello all,<BR>What are the possible tire sizes that can be<BR>placed on the Alloy (8-spoke) Rim that comes standard on the 2001 S40? The OEM size is 195 60/R15's, however, I was wondering if 205 55/R15's would fit without any problems??<P>Please let me know.<P>Pavel<P>

I am not sure, but there might be someone out there who knows if it will work. There is a -1.4% difference between speedometer readings for those two tires.<P>-Drew
