Alternatlively - 225/60/15 will also work - there are a few listers that are running that size, myself included. I use 205/60/15 as my snow tire size.

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.
Nope. 215/60 15 is the correct size (look at the inside of the fuel filler
cover). Alternately, you may (if you do a lot of highway driving) use 205/65
15 tires, which are geared more for comfort and are also pretty good if your
putting snow tires on. Speedo should be unaffected. I bought my (used) '90
v8q with these and they performed quite well. But if you like to corner
hard, stick with the 215/60 size. Incidentally, 205/65 will give you
slightly better gas mileage.
'91 200q20v with a few mods...
