    Will 215 tryres fit my rims??

    currently i have got 205 wide tyres on my 17inch rims and im wanting to put 215's on as they need replace.

    but i want to make sure that they will fit before i order them.

    i am pretty sure my rims are only 7j but im not 100% if they are only this wide will 215's be pushing it a little bit??

    iirc 215s are what you want to be running on.

    ForZiE, are coupe turbo rims 7" or 7 1/2" wide. It might be a bit tight if you are trying to get 215's on 7" rims (I spose I could go outside and look at mine but it's too cold!)

    Chris, If you have managed to get 205's on there and they don't look a bit wide, 215's should go on easy - but don't quote me on that!

    cheers guys.

    my 205's don't look overly wide on the rim. has anyone else got 7x17 rims with 215's fitted???

    also how can i check for deffinate if my wheels are 7j and not 7.5j although i am almost certain that they are only 7j??

    don't know if i quite trust kwick fit to give me a correct answer. they told my girlfreind that she needed 3 new tyres for here at £40 a pop she promptly told them to stick three tyres up there arse

    yes 215 is what they should for the astra but the wheels orignaly came off a corsa with 205's fitted and i have only just worn them down to the point of replacement

    Standard turbo's are 7½J.

    215's should fitt on 7J rims - that the narrowest tho

    yeah they will fit just make sure the person fitting them is competent, because they are pretty tight, but once on you wont have any problems
