    would 205/40/17 give a "stretched" look?

    Hi Guys,

    I have a set of se2 alloys and was just wondering if fitting a set of 205/40/17 would look like the "stretched" look.

    I know the standard size on these is 215/40/17 but jut wanted to know if the 205's would fit. Pics if possible would be good.

    they would fit, not sure they would look stretched though tbh, also you may struggle to get tyre fitters to fit smaller tyres than recomended as it isnt exactly safe...
