Keep in mind that tires are generally wider than the wheel they are installed on. Exception is "stretched" tires (tires fitted to rims wider than the tire manufacturer recommends).

In addition to the wheel width, allow additional 0.6" to 2.6" for tire width (allow zero extra for stretched tires).

My Sedan measurements:

Back Measure: 5.5 inch (140 mm)
Face Measure Right: 2-7/8" (73 mm)
Face Measure Left: 3-3/8" (86 mm)

So the wheelwell has an internal usable width of 213 to 226 mm.

So a 205 will fit, but will require a very exacting wheel offset. A 215 might even fit if fender lip is rolled.

Of course a little clearance is needed between the tire and spring, and between the tire and the inner edge of the fender.

Also take into consideration how far the rear axle moves side-to-side while driving.
