hey guys, ive been thinking about getting some new wheels and tyres for my 2.0 astra mk4
i think ive narrowed it down to the Uniroyal Rainsport 2 tyres as they have had some really good reviews for dry but mainly wet performance and the prices are very reasonable for the performance!
the wheels i hope to wrap them around are the Team Dynamics Pro 1.2 17" (unless there are some other similarly priced, similarly good-looking, less in weight wheels out there), which i am hopeful are going to give me improved performance over my current sxi 16" alloys!
i was just wondering.. currently i have 205/50/16 tyres (dunlop sp sport fast response on front, nexen n2000 i think, or rear)
the obvious progression would be 205/45/17 to maintain the closest size ratio, but i was wondering if i were to obtain improved performance by going for 215/45/17??
would the extra width impact heavily on fuel consumption? what about conering/straight line stability and aqua-plaining??
