What the hell is a "guague"? I guess that is pronounced "gwa-goo" or "gwag". Not exactly sure though.Wow! Those two guys right below me are no fun at all. How can you be so serious? I mean, duh! Lighten up, this Bud's for you...

I'll explain what tire sizes mean so you can figure it out for any size....the aspect ratio or profile is a percentage of the section width...therefore the sidewall of a 60 series tire is 60 % of the width ,in your case 185mm which means the height is 185 x .60 = 111 sidewall height times 2 (because there are two sidewalls plus the height of the rim size(not needed as a factor in your case since you aren't changing rim size..if you were you would need to convert one or the other measurement to metric or standard) the tires you are looking at are 205x.50 = 102.5 and 205 x .55 = 112.75 ...the first tire will be a little shorter that may result in your speedometer reading slightly faster but the second choice is a very little bigger and the difference from stock would probably not be noticeable.

Yes. Anytime you change the size of the tire/wheel you change the distance traveled with every revolution. This will effect all gagues based on distance traveled. Like speed and mileage. But that is so little that it might not be significant. When I went from 16 in to 17 in wheels on my previous car it made my speedometer read 5 mph off. Yours should be less. Usually, a programmer is a good way to resolve this. You can fix this, usually remove governors, free up some horse power and change shift points (if auto).
