147 tyre size.
Last week i bought new 17 inch wheels (original Alfa) for my 147 2.0TS Selespeed (see pictures). Originally they should be fitted with 215-45/17 tyres but the shop where i bought them didnt have them in stock.
My tyreshop suggested to fit 225-45-17 since its size is similar to the 205-55-16 so the speedo wont be different. 215-45-17 is different i guess.
However when fitted with 225-45-17 tyres a bracket above the frontwheel seems to be to close for comfort. On the jacks it had about 5 mm. of space, when down on the ground it seemed to rub.
Do i perhaps need spacers to fit these wheels.
I didn´t let the tyreshop fit the tyres and let them order 215-45-17 tyres instead.
Anyone with experience on this issue.....
Yes, last week i also fitted an Eibach 30mm. pro/kit wich will be going off next week. The ride is bumpy, I keep hitting speedbumps and the cd is skipping more often then before). I just dont like it. Also the look is to low for my liking (rear is perfect, but front is to low for me).
You be the judges....
