Default KONI spring kit and dampeners, thoughts?

If I get the GenuineSaab.com Koni Lowering Springs and Dampener kit for my '04 Linear, will my 205/65 R15's still fit well within the wheel-well.

The tire calculator indicates the 195/65 R15's are the closest match-up to rotation,diameter,etc as it equates to a 0% difference. But 205/65 R15's were the OEM size for the 15" rims.

Thoughts?

Paul

Default I would think so...

Just looking at those numbers there... Are you sure they were 205/65 R15? All of the recommended tyres for the 15" wheels on the 9-3 are 195/65 R15 (WIS).

I (and others) have the stock 225/45 R17's with the H&R 40mm lowering springs with no problems at all.

Original Equipment Spec. was 205/65 R15's for my '04 car and have stuck with that tire size since then on my 15's.
