    New Wheels

    Ok, can anybody work this out for me?

    I did have standard 14s on with 175/65/14s on.

    I now have much nicer 15s on with 195/50/15s on.

    Are they the same rolling radius size or not?

    Although my car is a lot more stable, it feels a bit slower.

    Your overall diameter before was 583.1mm

    Your overall diameter now is 576.0mm

    So your gearing will be a bit lower. Prob not notice much difference though - pretty small difference.

    Odd, I thought the new ones were bigger. Cheers though!
