Your speedo will slightly over-read (2.7%) with 195/65x15 - but slightly under-read (strictly speaking this could be illegal - just saying :wink: ) if you went 195/70x15.

Out of curiosity I had a look at 195/70x15 tyres and they're all van tyres..

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.
