Its a matter of if you get the wrong size it could make your speedometer show the wrong speed. Thats why there are guidlines to plus sizing.

Not true. If you go by the right plus size the tire will still be the same size. If you use the tires I mentioned, it is the same size as the 185/65-14. The difference is the sidewall of the tire. The sidewall is shorter than the 185/65-14 which makes it the same size.
On my 2000 spectra (in your country you call it a shuma) they are the very same car and I had 205/40/17 on it. No rubbing issues ever...

If you worry about the diameter of tires you can adjust it through this simple and nice tire calculator. It is recommended that the diameters of old and new tire doesn't come over +- 2.5%.

Just adjust width, height and profile - it's simple.
