    yes no problem as said it will make your speedo 1.6% SLOW, that is 1mph at 60mph,, what winter tyres are you getting?

    It makes no real difference moving 225/50 and 225/45 both make the speedo reading out about 2.06%

    However with winter tyres the speed reading is not exactly top concern though

    Just looked at my book, apparently i cant use the same size of winter tyres,as my summer ones which are 215/50/17's i imagine you can't use 215's either.

    I think narrow is the way to go, 205/ 195s with winter tyres.

    Yep I've done the same 2 lassa snowways and they are superb!! I couldn't get grip last year on my toyos, I haven't spun up yet on these lassas. The best £190 I've ever spent
