i am driving my mondeo mk2 V6 Ghia X to Poland in two weeks time and am looking for winter tyres at the moment and need help as i do not have a clue about cars. Does anybody know if 205/55/R16 winter tyres will fit onto my current alloys which currently have 205/50/R16s fitted without any problems :blink: ?

yes they will fit without any problems. all it means is you have a bigger sidewall which will make your speedo slightly less accurate.

so there should be no dramas with suspension, transmission etc?

there wont be any issues with suspension or transmission, as i said before your speedo will read slightly less accurate. if your speed is 70mph your speedo will be reading 72.35mph so its not really a major issue.
