    As far as i know m8,thay all had 215/55/16s on as original equipment,but nothing to stop you using that size as they are probably cheaper,i do stand to be corrected though.

    I agree, cars are normally sold with 215/55R16 on them
    However, the 205/55R16 is slightly cheaper
    As a result many owners swap over
    Equally, dealers may swap over so that the car is sold with legal tyres

    If the rears were 205/55R16 what was on the front?
