Iím honestly not sure, I could find extremely close diameters if your tires are worn and you are ready to change both front and rear,but given changing front or rear, quite limited. This is a snap shot of original tire sizes from smart, and the 185/60R15 and 205/50R16 combo.
65 - 65.8 MPH for the stock wheels
65 - 65.9 MPH for the proposed setup
Itís very close but yes outside the range
175/55R15 and 195/50R15 came with optional wheels:
65 - 65.3 MPH
16/60R15 and 195/50R15 came with my optional wheels:
65 - 64.7 MPH
Ideally keep it between:
65 - 65.8 and 65 - 64.7, if that makes sense, (itís how I gauged a staggered setup), as those came direct from smart on various wheels offered by smart.
