    these tyres too big (mk4 hatch)

    Spoted some vectra gsi phase 2 17"s for sale, but they have 215/45/17 tyres on them.

    My last mk4 had 215/40/17's but just wondering how much of a difference the 5% bigger sidewall makes (any fitment issues?)

    Also any pics of these tyres on a mk4?

    I love these wheels, so thought about using them for winter (easier to clean than my 18" detroit f1's... too many spokes, lol)

    cheers
