Default 92 LeSabre Tire Size

I would sure welcome comments/opinions on this: someone wants to give me a new set of tires on rims, to pay off a debt. The tires are 195/55R15. Would tires with that low of a profile look stupid on my 92 LeSabre? Are there other things I have to consider, such as speedo accuracy when I change tire-profile size this way? Thanks for reading this.

Different tire size does have an effect on your speedo. But 195'* seem small for the weight of the car. Stick with what the sticker on the inside of your door says.
