Compare the tire sizes here: https://tiresize.com/comparison/ The 205's will be smaller and make the speedo inaccurate.


Too small!

This will definitely affect the vehicles handling and stability. Remember the roll over problems Explorers had in the 90's? I would keep the recommended tire size on the vehicle.

For some reason I don't remember about the roll over problem,lolI was 20yrs old and just staarting to drink,lol,but yeah,everyone sez go with what the tire size sez for the vehicle,thanx for the info,everyone

Had another flat today,some rock punctured the sidewall so I was told unrepairable,so I have 1 brand new tire and three crappy tires which all lose air slowly,just hope my ride lasts till monday when I get used but better than what I have now,can't afford new tires at the moment,hard times.....
