PostSubject: Stretch options?   Fri Mar 25 2011, 10:07

I just had my car lowered further and I thought as I would need 4 new tyres in a couple of months just bite the bullet and get them now but go for some stretch. At the momenty I have 205/45/15 fitted.
I have fitted 195/45/15 barely any difference.
tried 185/50/15 still not enough in my opinion.
I asked for 175 and got 175/60/15, I like the stretch, but the tyre looks too fat.
I have persuaded him to get me a 175/55/15 to try today, but apparently they are the same as smart car rears and th eload rating is T which isnt really suitable. He will fit them but advises me against it.
Is he worrying too much?????
Are there any better options I have missed?????

I think they are 7's. I suggested the 185/45s to him and he said they would throw my speedo out too much?

I bet your speedo is along way out as it is, mk1s are hardly accurate Razz

Thanks for your input Matty but I have just seen them with 175/55/15 and decided to go with them. Cheers anyway.

Cheers Mike, great info, wrong time, I made them fit all the different tyres. They probably really hate me. lol
