tyre sizes and alloys

While down at NAD was talking to think it was Tony24 about fitting 17 inch wheels and keeping the speedo reading about right so i found this http://www.tyresave.co.uk/tyresize.html

All you do is type in your tyre size and then the size you want to fit and it works out the percentage it will be out

Hope someone finds it helpful http://www.alfaowner.com/forum/ubb/icons/icon6.gif

seems the general opinion for 17's is to fit 205/40/17, these semm to give the best fitment and samish overall diameter as 15's with 205/50/15's

Didn`t understand the tyre sizing thing I suppose the idea is to come close to the + /- thing .The Rial alloys did not go well with the 155 but a nice idea comparing the wheel on the car,pity there wasn`t more to chose from!

Closest I could find was 225/35x17 only 3mm out as opposed to 10mm with 205/40x17, but I don't know if they will fit.

anyone know if 8x17's will fit on a narrow body with 215 tyres?

I think 225/35's would rub quite a bit on large steering movements and the ride might be a bit harsh with just 35 depth, especially if you have lowered suspension eek!

It would look pretty cool with those bad boy tyres on though

even 205/40/17s don't give a whole lot of space against the front bumper inner liner!
