    Can any one tell me what difference up sizing my tyres from 205 55 r16 to 225 55 r16 would make to the ride or performance to a c class w203 mercedes, having spent thousands already , I don't want to spend more on new alloys. 205 55 16 is the original set up.

    Sidewall will be 0.5" higher so ride will be 'softer' and the spedo will be reading slow by 2mph at an indicated 60
