    Default Quick wheel Q.

    Looking at some alloys for the wife's astra just to smarten it up a bit.
    The steeleys on it at the moment are 195 65 15
    And the alloys have 185 55 15. Any problems with these or just a swap.

    The tyres are actually 2" smaller in outside diameter on the new wheels so will look rather silly under the arches

    Swap the tyres over

    If they were 17's they would be spot on
