Howdy y'all,

I know you may think this is a really old question, but maybe not
in the way I am looking at.  So here goes......

Both of my 200q20v's came with 15" BBS rims shod with 215/60-15 tires,
so I've always thought that is the original stock setup and that's what
the speedometer on our cars was calibrated to.  Well, I was just looking
up the Audiworld website


and the "Technical Specs" lists the tiresize for the 200q20v to be
205/60-15.  Now is *THAT* the official tire size for that car and thus
gives the most accurate speedometer reading?

The reason I am asking this is that I am about to put on new rims on my
cars and I would like to use the tires that give the closest match to
the original spec for the speedo.  Thanks.
