    Default 17" Wheels and tyre size 215 45 17

    Im considering bidding on a set of wheels fitted with the above mentioned tyres , i appreciate the size reccomended for 17's is 215 50 17.

    I was wondering what effect fitting these would have on my 2004 vectra. I have done some research and the best i can come up with is that my speedo will be 2% or thereabouts wrong which i can live with , anything else i should know??

    thanks.

    Yes, your speedo will read slightly more than it does now.

    You'll also get a slightly firmer ride because of the slight redcution in the side wall height.

    thanks for the info , ended up bidding on them to suddenly have the auction end without it having had a buy it now price , somewhat confused as to why seeing as they were up at £340 with 3days remaining
    suspect? (they are from a business that seems to sell alot of wheels and has 100% feedback)
