[201/124] 195 tyres on 6Jx15 rims

I am contemplating putting on a set of Gullideckels (15 hole) onto my 124 (currently on Achtloch rims). The trouble is, the rims I have found are from a 201 and hence have a 6 width as opposed to the 6.5 wide rims installed on the 124.

The standard tyres for my 124 are 195/65R15 and the designated rims are 6.5Jx15, whereas the 201 setup (per factory spec) is 185/65R15 rubber on 6Jx15 wheels. Offset is identical in both cases (ET49).

From a practical perspective, has anyone experienced any negative effects of fitting 195/65R15 tyres on the narrower 6Jx15 rims? It is only a half inch difference...
