hey everyone, would a 205/55-16 be too big on a Clubman S?

stock size as you know is 195/55-16... miata.net tells me the speedo would be too slow by 1.8%

That is what I run for my summers on my 2004 Cooper...

You should be ok.. just have to remember that you will be going 1.8km/h faster then your speedo says... or is it 3.3km/hr slower given the 5km slower stock? based on the other thread info... :S

bottom line, unless the clubman has small wheel well tolerances.. u should be ok.

Many speedos read fast by that amount anyway - yours might be right!

120 kph = 2 kms / min and 401 has signs each km so you can check easily. Or look at the speed on your GPS
