Will these tyres fit?

205 55 16 CONTINENTAL MATADOR TYRES 91W XL @ ASH TYRES 01978 661166 LL13 9UZ | eBay

Just bought 2 of these and I have the standard Ghia 2 litre alloys on my Cmax. Surely I haven't missed anything?

205/55R16 are the std size for at least the steel wheels 91V is usuual Load/Speed rating so W is better

I take it the V and W letters stand for the speed rating. As long as I get the fitting right I'm ok.

Indeed V & W are the speed ratings

this is the guide as to the size of rims that the 205/55R16 tyre will fit
Pages from Continental Car Tyre Technical Databook 2011.pdf

think perhaps use of "Continental" is hoping that people feel they may be more than they are

Continental Matador Rubber - Spolo nose
