    Exclamation Tyre size

    Getting some new alloys for my sxi.... Could somebody please tell me if 225 x 40 x 17 will fit or are they too wide. the standard wheels are
    205 x 50 x 16, i would like to fit 225s so the speedo reads pretty much the same. i was told that the sxi already has lowered suspension is this true or shall i get it lowered 40mm

    I run those on my SRi-T just for that little bit of comfort. IIRC Ffoeg does too.

    For those of you not sure which size tyre or alloys go to
    http://www.rochfordtyres.co.uk/tyrecalc.asp
    it gives you a size guide. suited to the original diameter and how far your speedo will be out.
