    Standard Tyres are 215/40/17

    Comparing yours with i would have thought the Width would be OK but hte Profile will screw ya speedo up! Can see any other problems other than that and possibly a bit or rubbage!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    Have a look on that tyre size calculator.
    205 40 17 would be better as it will add a bit of acceleration.
    i had 235 45 17's and they slowed my car down a bit so 205 50 17's would slow ur aceleration down too.
