    215/45 tyres

    Hoping to win a set of 17's in the morning off ebay

    the tyre size is 215/45/17 and they are off a Vectra, will they give me no hassle or is that tyre size a bit to big? i.e 205/40/17 would be better?

    car is lowered 40mm so i really do not want catching

    I've got 215/45/17's on with a 35mm drop and no rubbage.

    but it will ultimatley depend on your offset

    as above - all depends on the all important ET......anyway 215/40/17 would be better than 205/40/17 - fills the arch that little bit better.

    Have u got a link to the ebay page in question so we can check ET etc - or just let us know the rim width & ET

    215/40/17 is factory fit on the Turbos.

    45s will be no problem at all, bit more comfortable even.
