Re: Just found out my front tyres are too small, any issues?
I once had some 195's on my Corrado, the standard was 205 but at the time I wasn't doing too well for money and any 205+ tyre was almost twice the price of the equivalent 195.
That's possibly why the previous owner had slightly narrower tyres fitted on your car, to save a packet. Unless the potential insurance validity bothers you and the tyres have ample tread, I personally wouldn't bin them. The difference in performance was minimal on the Corrado, and that baby was pulling 210 bhp / 223 lb ft through the front wheels.
Ultimately it's up to you.
With reliability will ultimately come monotony.....
