Will 195/50/15" fit the standard wheels??

As the title says, I looking to replace the boots on the 147 15" standard wheels which have 195/60/15" but thought about going for 195/50/15" to improve the handling abit or can you fit 205/55/15"?

Cheers for any help.

195/60R15 are already the smallest diameter tyre of the 147/156/GT range, so the idea of using an even smaller diameter tyre is not a good one!

156 used 185/65R15 and 205/60R15, so either of those would fit if you really don't want to use the original 195/60R15.

To go down in profile, you really need to go up in diameter ... otherwise you throw out speedo, odometer, etc

Carbibles is a great place to start to check out what tyres could be fitted to match your current size ... Car Bibles : The Wheel and Tyre Bible Page 3 of 4 ... out you also have to remember not all tyres are made in every size and profile, so even though it might suggest it could work, you will never get hold of the tyres.
