willtheyfit.com

this will tell you exactly how they will sit in comparison to your current wheels,
Then just do the measuring. Saved a couple of times lately

You might get away with it at the front with pulled tyres , lots O negative camber and rolled lips but no chance at the rear with that offset.
once again MIGHT !!! check with techwiki

Yes they will poke outside the body

But if you put small enough tires it'll work. 185/50R13 is smaller diameter than stock 155/80R12
They will fit.com
Just don't try lowering the car ...

Techwiki says:
estimate Front 185/60R13 -- requires +15 to +25 rim
estimate Rear requires 21 offset or more
Wonder how accurate those estimates are


I had ~30 mm flares with 8" +0 rims and 195 tires and there was room left over on the inside. So I suspect 205 on 7.5" -7 would work

The front is much tighter as you can't move the tire in all the way to the spring. Well you can but risk larger tires rubbing the inner bodywork while making turns. I had 175 tires on 7" +0 rims with ~20 mm flares, with no rubbing, even cleared during u-turns. But that's a relatively skinny tire

I'm running 14x7j 0 on the rear on standard diff, sits just outside the wheel arch. Nothing a quick guard roll couldn't fix.

The rim doesn't come anywhere near the guard ... so what tyre are you running on that rim?

If you stretch a tyre less than 7" wide onto that rim (say a 175 tyre), it might fit inside
