    Tyre question

    Hi guys got se2's with 215/40/17 which im guess is the correct size would it make much difference if i put 215/45 on the front for now as they need changing and I know someone selling a set thx.

    they may set the traction control off now n again if not all the time due to the fronts and backs travelling different distances

    no other real problems to worry about though

    if you have a traction control switch then u can switch it off to prevent it from kicking in... if u dont have one, then fit one

    Depending what was fitted to the car originally, technically, 215/45/17 is a more accurate size vs the 215/40/17's.

    std as u say is and was 215/40 but upping the profile to 45 is no real biggie

    so in the real world the only "issue" u may have is the TC


    as for fitting the switch, most cars will need the TC loom retro fitting too

    the plugs u have are probs for the heated seats (ie green and black), the TC plug would be blue

    if u dont have it tho, no worries, the new switch, trim panel and wiring loom only comes in at £30 from vauxhall and takes about 30mins to fit

    we have a guide on this mod in the relevant how-to section
