2004 Boxster Tires

Hi All, Can I put 205/55 r17 front and 235/50 r17 rear winter tires on a 2004 Boxster? Its usually the tire specs for a 2005 I was told it will fit only thing is to account for odometer being off by something like if I was driving 80 it is probably more like 90

The total diameter on the 9x7 cars is larger than the 9x6 cars. A 205/55/17 is over 1" larger in diameter, and a 235/50/17 is about 1.5" larger.

You can actually run 225/45/17 rears with no change in diameter compare to stock.
