What offset was the wheel? And were you on standard suspension?I had 225/45/17 on my 147 when I bought it a few months ago and found that on full lock they foul on the suspension strut. It was also very prone to tramlining - the tyres were fairly knackered anyway so changed to 215/45/17 and now all ok. I think others on here have found the same issues.
+1 :thumbs:225/45R17 are practically the same diameter as the std 16" size, so the speedo should be fine.
The offset is different.I've got 225/45/17 on mine with no issues. My rims are off a GTA though with 7.5j width and as far as I'm aware 225 is the tyre size GTA's are meant to have so maybe offset is different to other 147 alloys.
166 wheels won't fit a 147 or any other Alfa for that matter.Thanks for the help
The wheels I was thinking of getting are from an 166, so maybe best if I leave it and wait till I find some 147 ones.
