    What size tyres?

    http://pistonheads.com/sales/241558.htm

    I've got that. I don't know if the wheels are the Vauzhall optional extras or what? If so, this website, http://www.tyre-shopper.co.uk/ts/search/VRMSearch.aspx, says they should be
    255/35R18 Y.

    The ones that are on now are 225 35 R18.

    I'm not so convinced that the ones that are on now are the correct size. Quikfit had a look but seemed a bit unhelpful. Anyone any idea what size should be on?

    Ideally a MK4 should have 215/35, but if 225/35 don't rub there is no reason why that can't be used.

    I'd say there's a fault with their website because there's no way 255 tyres are going to fit without some seriour modicication. I don't even think Pete on here is running 255's with his wide arch kit

    As above though idealy a MK4 should run 215 tyres. The car those wheels are from would have 225's which is why they have them on now.
