Default 205/70/15 fit on RS?

Just wondering if a 205/70/15 snow tire would fit on a stock RS with only 1 or 2 passengers in car. Found a good deal on snow tires that were originally on a Forester... SNow tires come with 15 inch steel wheels so I would assume they fit because it an overall smaller wheel?

might be tight..... I ran a couple of years with 205-60-15 and no issue... I'm back with 195-65-15's.

It's a smaller wheel 15's vs 16's (yes) but it's actually a bigger tire.... by almost 6%.

You can calculate the diferrences here:

I ran some 205/70-15 Cooper snow tires on my '99 RS on stock subie steel wheels. Fit fine. Second year I ran the setup, I was even on a KYB/GC setup with some good amount of lowering.
