    Default Snowflake tyres

    What size are fitted as standard, and can you fit 'deeper' tyres to improve ride quality.

    I have 19" snowflakes and they are 235/35/19, if you had deeper tyres than standard I would imagine your speedo and trip computer etc would be out as the outer circumference of the wheel would increase making the car move further per revolution.
    Someone will correct me if i'm wrong.

    Nobody will correct you as you are already correct !

    The overall circumferance of the tyre can not be changed whether you have 16'' or 19'' wheels. The only difference will be in the tyres profile (depth of sidewall). My tyres are 225/45/18.

    If you whent to a tyre size of 235.40.19, your rolling radius woulld go from 203.29
    to 210.68, so when your speedo reads 30mph you will be doing 31.1mph ! you can
    go from standard 17" sri alloys with 215.50 17 to the 19" rims with the 235.35.19's
    with correct speedo readings, you would have to check with bigger tyres if they
    might foul the arches or strut ! something to do with the offset i think !
