    Looking for pics of 17's with 215/45 tyres fittef

    Hi,

    I am just looking for some pics of an Astra G rolling on 17's with 215/45 profile tyres, can anyone help me out so I can guage if they look OK. I know the normal profile is 215/40/17, but want a little bit of added protection for the alloys....

    Any pics of these wheesl on an Astra G would do, I ain't fussy.....

    Much Thankies

    Not sure if these were the 40's or 45's I had on as I had both fitted at one point

    At bit more comfortable ride, but I swapped them for 40's to get the car lower to the ground and because having 205/40/17 in a 4stud makes them easier to sell.
    but if I were to keep them I would have stayed with the 45 tyre wall for the overall comfort and the 215 just because they look beefer

    Yeh I am either going for 215/40 or 215/45 profile. Want to go for 45 for the reason that I don't want to have to keep re-furbishing my wheels due to damaged cause by pot holes etc.

    they started with one then changed over to the other
