    Tyre Size Question On A 8J Rim???

    I currently have 235/40/17 on the rear of my mr2, going replace the them soon, just wondering if 255/40/17 would go on a 8J rim?

    Thanks

    Yeah you will. I had a golf with 9j porsche rims on the rear and they had 215,35,16 on. Super stretched.

    I don't want the stretched look, i want more rear traction - so wider tyres . .

    I had 255's on 8j's the rear of a BM. They fit pretty well. Sidewalls sit pretty square, doesn't look 'over tyred'

    obviously various makes of tyre have slightly more rounded profiles than others. I had Falken 452's IIRC
