Tire fitting??

So, I was having my wheels rotated by my "tire guy". And I commented on the BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2. and he says he has this size 205/50ZR15
as a miss order. And will give me a good price. Will these fit my stock rims? (15" - 195/60/15) OR will this look bad?

Sidewall is too short. You'll be spinning your tires all day long. 205/55/15 is a much better choice.

The 195/60-15's are 24.2" in diameter. The 205/50's are 22.7 inches in diameter which is on the short side. It will throw your speedo off by 6.3% and show that same increase in mileage on the odo even though you haven't put that actual mileage on the car.

^Sorry I was wrong, he does have the size 205/55ZR15 as a miss-order. His offer was $275 for all 4, still has the stickers on the tread. What do ya guts think? I'm very tempted
