    Question winter tyre sizes.

    Good evening

    I am getting some Winter Tyres sorted ready for my 50 mile commute,

    I am running 215/50-17s as standard, but have got the chance for a set of 205/50-17

    I know it will drop the rolling radius by 1.55% or 10mm, and will affect the already out a tad speedo.

    but will there be any other issues ?

    Its a 06 plate sri 150 cdti btw

    thanks in advance
