Correct, unless you go to 215/40.

I have 40's on 16 and it makes the ride to rough and makes me drive like a grandma. Plus my gas milage isn't as good. I personally am going to change to 45

Hey Man,
I have a 97 GTI and went with 215/40 16's and they are wicked, speedo is correct, better have a stiff suspension or you will rub, no more than 2.5 drop.

215 40 and 205 45 are VERY close in outer diameter, and are equally as good, but when it comes time to replace them, the 205 45 is gonna be easier to source.

205/45-16 is the correct tire application.
The Kumho's are a good choice. I'm going to replace my current set at the end of this week with some new ones.
