Default Plus Zero Fitment

Has anyone tried this Plus Zero Fitment and had success?
95 Accord Wagon EX, Stock Aluminum 15" x 5.5" Rims
Going from 195/60/HR15 to a 205/55/VR15.
If anyone has done this on a 5th Gen Accord I'd love to know how it worked.
Thanks

From a pure diameter perspective if you went to 215/55 R15 tires you'd be better off with regard to your speedometer and odometer (the 205/55 R15s are too short and your instruments will read fast and register more miles than actually driven), however, you may have fender clearance issues, especially if you've lowered your car.

Thanks for the feedback. i checked & the overall diameter of the Kumho Ecsta 4X 205/55/15 is 23.9" and the revolutions per mile are 869, the overall diameter of the Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 195/60/15 is 24.1" and revolutions per mile are 874 ( these specs are from Tire Rack). I don't think these small differences would affect speedo/odo or Anti-lock brakes. Also,car is totally stock & will not be lowered.

Hmmm, there's something strangely wrong in 205/55 R15 land. Why?
  • Very few tires to choose from (4 on TireRack).
  • The "Revs Per Mile" metric varies W-I-D-E-L-Y, from a high of 874 on the Dunlop Direzza DZ101 to a low of 843 for the Bridgestone Potenza RE92 (which is the only one of the four tires which matches my calculations).

Not the first time I've seen similar typo errors in TR's spec tables. Often they get changed so I bet they occasionally proofread their work?

For each particular tire, does the diameter agree with the revs/mile data?
