Some others have posted this link before, very helpful


According to this (which is simplified) Your overall outside dimension diameter is increasing .6", possibly more depending on tire brand/model differences

Certain tire brands seem to "bulge" more than others past the face of the wheel, just fyi.

You will be losing clearance (other members with more knowledge can probably tell you if acceptable or not), and your car will be raised slightly with this setup.

If you plan to lower your car or if it already is, the loss in clearance may be very important. You may want to go with an even smaller sidewall tire, but that will be "undersized" compared to stock

note: for the factory size, there is a .2" difference compared to actual stock tire, but the difference should be relative
