The 185 75 series will have a taller sidewall than the 70 series but the 205 will have a wider tread and be a bigger tire overall. Stand them side by side to see their height difference then check and see if one will rub anywhere up front with your wheels turned in each directions. If you have adequate clearance, I see no problem other than your speedometer will register a slightly slower speed when using the larger tires.

Change engine il and tire pressure message how do i rest

Must have codes for check engine light cleared with scan tool. Check all tire pressures and road test up to 35 mph. Tire message should clear if low tire was problem. If light for tires remains then possible radio frequency sensor problem. Sensor replacement may be necessary. Sensors have alkaline non-serviceable batteries. If battery is dead sensor will have to be replaced.
