    Question about tyres

    hey,

    my tyres are 215/40/17
    i took my alloys off yesterday because my back 2 tyre walls are mashed (due to the driving under low pressures)


    right i basically need to replace 2 tyres on my 17's

    I've got 2 tyres available but they are 205/40/17,

    can i put them on the back 2 wheels even tho the profile is slightly different?????????
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    if you put the 205s on the front and the 215s on the back it should be fine...other way round might affect handling

    As long as you have the same size tyres on the same axle (ie 205 on front OR 205's on Rear) then you should be OK.
