All 1km or less out on speedo but u will never get a total diameter to match excatly. Also im not an expert on tires so im not sure those tire sizes exist.

These tyre sizes do indeed exist, most common conversion is 235/40/18 or 245/40/18. Most e-series falcons came out with 205/65/15 tyres and the makers allow for a 15mm difference in tyre diameter, the later e-series falcons had the option of factory 16inch wheels and the 235/40/18 is within the diameter limits
