Hey guys,

So I'm looking at a set of 215/55/16 dunlop wintersport m3s. How do you think these would fare on my 04 WRX? I understand the stock tire size is 205/55/16, so these dunlops are a little bit wider. Will this wider size make them that much worse in the winter than the 205 or will it be unnoticable. From looking at http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html it will also make my speedometer 1.7% slow. Are these things worth worrying about, or should I just go for these?

Thanks
