159 2.2JTS

Rim & Tyre Sizes for 159 2.2JTS

Been searching the Net for light alloy rim (preferably forged) to reduce unsprung weight and thus, improve handling of my 159 2.2JTS but found nothing. My 159 was delivered with 225/50 tyres on 17" multi-spoke rims. I got the following questions which I would very much appreciate some advice on:

1) Can I fit 235/45 tyre to my stock 17" rim?

2) What are the PCD (110?), width (7.5?), centre bore and offset (41?) of my 17" rim?

3) What width (8?) and offset would I need for 18" rim?

4) The stock 18" tyre is 235/45; can I use 235/40 instead?

5) Which would be a lighter setup, 17" or 18"?

6) Any recommendation for light rims for the 159? I kind of like the Prodrive GC-010E Forged but not sure if they make for the 159.

Thanks and cheers!

Re: Rim & Tyre Sizes for 159 2.2JTS

1) No, it is 14mm smaller in diameter

4) No, it is 24mm smaller in diameter

2) Yes 5x110 (you will find it is the same as Vauxhall/Opal/Saab)
