'99 V70 XC Snow Tire Size (?)

The manual says 195/65-15

Nokian says use 205/65-15 on the XC, and 195/65 on other V70 AWDs.

Wonder who's right - I usually minus-size winter tires, but this is my
first AWD and I want to maximize traction w/o losing ground clearance
(even .5").

BTW, who has best Nokian Hakka 2 prices in the US? Haven't found any
great online bargains so far.

Your manual may recommend this size so there's room for tire chains. If
you want to use the stock size and don't plan on using chains, then go
ahead. Also there's something to be said for using a more common size -
prices and availability are usually better.
