stop using caps.

And 205s are to wide, you have bottlecap rims which are 6 inches wide, to use 205s you need minimum of 6.5 inch which is the basket weave. Im not sure but id guess the widest you can go is 195 65

And BTW you have your math all wrong or you dont understand sidewall ratios. To run 205s on 14s and keep the same aspect you need 60. the original ratio is 195 65, if you went to a 205 55 the wheel would be too small in rolling diameter.
