205x70-R15s will get you closer to the original rolling diameter
of the 185-15s that were OE. The 205x65 are lower profile, slightly
higher performance size, but will introduce a larger speedometer error
than the 205x70-15s. The 205x60 will give a 4% error, the 205x70 will
give a 1.5% error.
185-15 = 26.6"
205x70-15 = 26.3"
205x65-15 = 25.5"

I have run 215/60-15 tires on my "6" with no problems. I would imagine
205/65's would be just fine.
