    Ive had a 255 35 20 as a temp tyre for a week while I waited for a 245 to come in and that fitted fine, to be honest it didnt look all that different to a 245 mate

    well i got 265 35 18 on some 9.5" wide alloys & they look nice & square on the wheel,

    what width alloy is yours at the mo , do the 245 look square or got a slight stretch look,

    also if dont catch on inner arch now then may do if put the 265's on

    As you're not reducing the profile but you're increasing the width, they'll have a bigger circumference than the correct tyre.

    could be ok , unfortunatly may be a trial & error process,

    also looks like not many have fitted 20's to the insignia

    not trying to be funny but you understand what the numbers mean on the tyres ie 255 is width in mm , the 40 is the percentage of the width of the tyre which equals the height of the tyre wall so 40% of 255 is102mm , then the last number is size of wheel it fits on

    this tyre size calculator is useful
    http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html
    so, as you can see:
    • 245/35/20 diameter 679.5mm, revs/km 468
    • 255/40/20 diamter 712.0mm, revs/km 447


    That's a noticeable difference in diameter: +32.5mm (1.2 inches).
    It will definitely cause the speedo readings to be wrong; it will under read by 3 mph -- which isn't good news when there's speed cameras about.
