16 inch tires - 50s or 55s

ZTS stock size is 205-50-16
has anyone installed 205-55-16 ?
besides more selection in 55 series and better pricing
any difference in ride or tire wear?

I had 205/55R 16V Pirelli P7's on my MkII Ghia - got about 18k out of the fronts. Now trying Pirelli P6000's.
Also in the UK V's are cheaper than H's. Dunno why.
Icky

The only difference you would notice is you will be traveling faster than indicated by your speedometer. But the difference is to small to be noticable. you'll be going 62 with and indicated 60 mph. Only other thing is the difference in feel of the car...i.e. steering response will decrease ect.
