Stock tire size for 1991 560SEC

What is the stock tire size for a 1991 560SEC? seems that tire vendor list it as 205x65x15.

however on this site:

1991 Mercedes-Benz 560 SEC cat tire sizes (up to October 1991 for Europe )

it shows 215x65x15.

thank you

For USA delivered cars, 205/65 was OEM.
Perhaps for European delivery 215/65 was specified.
Either is fine.

You'll find that U.S. and E.U. specs of tyres on Mercedes cars usually do differ, but either option is absolutely OK.

What is a 560 SEC cat? That site doesn't strike me as an authority. 215/65 will fit with the speedometer reading 1-2 mph slow on the highway.
