|calculated the overall diameter of wheel+tire:|
195/40/16 = 22.14"
205/40/16 = 22.46"
not much of a difference, however, when we are talking about the 'perfect' stance, a third of an inch ends up being more than it sounds....my concern is the rockers of death found on cabrios. i wan't my tires tucked ever-so-slightly, but i don't want to put my rockers through the pavement.
ps... this is the kind of thread i dream of waking up the next day and still finding it on the first page of the mk3 forums. lets see this one get to 10 pages!

When most people compare 195 to 205, they don't worry about overall diameter, there isn't going to be anything noticeable.
I would suggest going with the 195 on the 7". As difficult as it is to stretch a tire on a 7", this would look great.
