    Default

    205/55R16 is the alternative
    215/55R16 is from the EU Conformity Certificate for this wheel size

    Either is perfectly acceptable on the 1.8

    Take a look at your handbook, either is acceptable (for this engine)

    It is also possible that someone did not like the original steel wheels and replaced them for other wheels, which came with 205/55R16
    One of the things that can happen once a car has changed hands a few times

    215/55 16"s on my 2004 1.8 Elegance.

    But 205/55 16"s were fitted to some models (mainly the bottom of the range ones) and are mentioned in the handbook. In terms of difference in rolling circumference, it's negligible.
