Try a website called willtheyfit.com and here you can type in all the measurements of your current tyres and the size you are looking for and you will see a wire diagram of how they will fit in the arch, and the difference in circumference and Speedo reading...

I have had the tyres fitted 205/70/15 fit ok, tiny bit of rub only under full steering lock.
Under normal driving everything is great, including bumpy forest tracks in Wales.
