    thinking about it, the aspect ratio is actually a percentage (the middle number) so I would probably suggest against it.

    Do you have any sort of traction control?

    the 205 tyre will be +0.09 mph faster

    doesn't quite work like that mate.

    Basically.....

    215 = tyre width
    55 = aspect ratio which is a percentage of the tyre width
    16 = rim in inches

    55% of 215 =118.25
    55% of 205 =112.75

    so the 205 will have a smaller rolling radius therefore be going quicker than the 215's
