    Wheels

    Hi

    Is their any other type of tyre you can put on a Turbo rim other than low-profile?

    Not really as the profile is another name for the height of the side wall, go too big and it won't fit in the arch

    Hi

    The car has not been lowered it just has Turbo rims.

    Is there an intermediate tyre that I could put on, instead of using a normal size tyre?

    I've got 215/45/17's on mine (lowered 30-35mm) instead of the "official" 215/40/17's and I've had no probs - infact I think they area much better size

    Hi mate

    Thanks, I'll have a look which tyres are on tomorrow in day light.

    The reason why I'm asking, my wife's coupe has turbo rims on but were getting a lot of noise coming from either the left or right tyre as the car travels across a rough surface.

    Hi

    Just checked the size of tyre which is on the car its 215/40/17.

    Do you know what the tyre pressure should be?
