Hello all,
What are the possible tire sizes that can be
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??

Please let me know.

205/55/R15's could be a problem on 15-inch wheels, but it depends on their width. 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.

205 is rumored to be about the widest you can fit without rubbing.

cheers!
