    Can I fit 205/40/17s to my coupe turbo wheels?

    As title guys. How do I stretchhhh them? (like what I did there? ) If poss. Does any garage just fit / stretch them on?

    Has anyone got a pic of 205/40/17s on the car?

    Cheers

    They will fit but you wont get much stretch
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    I have them tyres on mine, if i were to get tyres again i would go 215/40/17 instead.

    Leegsi is right, you hardly get any stretch to be honest! and K.a.r.l ……… good question, i thought they may have had more stretch when i had them on but i just went along with it!

    Its not really the stretch that im after to be honest. Just wondering if they would still fit ok. Cheaper tyres lol. Been looking at toyos on ebay and im just curious as to whether they would fit and fit well. What is the size of these wheels i.e 7 or 7.5?

    Why do you not like the 205s you've got now ElTel?
