That should work fine.
I see 215/55-16 listed as a stock size, and the slightly smaller & taller adds up to a similar size as you found from the calculator.
They'll be good, and better than stock size on your 17's IMHO.

I just bought a Focus Titanium, first Ford and looking forward to it. I'll be here a lot to ask questions.
My first priority is winter tires as I am in Northern Ontario. I read a bunch of forums about tire sizes but I unfortunately got more confused about what I can use.
Stock for my car is 215/50R17 and I have a set of studded 205/60R16 that I used for one season. I don't want to take any chances causing damage to my car but I would like to use these tires if they will work (I'll need new rims I know). Our roads are pretty bad (both potholes and snow/ice).
I looked at this site: http://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Tire-...0R17/205-60R16
and it says the variance is 0.87%. Everything else considered the same (condition of tire, traction etc..), is this size ok? What size would be best for snow?
Any help is appreciated.
Feel free to point me to the forum/post I missed on this too... but I have read the huge descriptions of tire measurements.

When making the switch between dedicated summer tires & a winter choice, getting the full benefit of snow/ice rated tires is well worth it.
Taking off the race rubber & going to all seasons might be fine in the south, real winter rubber works better in cold or snow.

|Logan57||I have a 2014 Focus Hatchback with 18" summer tires. I live in Central Ohio. I need to purchase All Weather Tires or Winter Tires. I'm not sure which way to go. My concern with the winter tires is the wear on the tire when driving on dry roads. I am undecided which to go. I'm looking for some advice, technical advice, etc.|

Taxes get me. 13% here
Priced them out on tire rack, and with shipping it comes close to the same. So I'll just get em locally. Sisters boyfriend works at a tire place in the next town. I don't mind spending a few bucks more to support an local business.

Ouch - not bad I'm sure, just higher up there.
I'll be at about $425 without studs, it'd be at least $100 more for those - didn't get a quote. Local sourced.
