Last question for a while :confused:

got the new wheels and they are fitted with 205/50/16 tyres.

the standard size for 16s on a corsa are 195/45/16 according to the handbook.

I need to replace one tyre, maybe two ( i knew this when i bought them :) ) is it worth me biting the bullet and getting 4 and going to a standard corsa size ?

The car is loaded up with 5 from time to tome so a standard size should clear :) whereas the 205 might rub :confused: :confused:

Thanks in advance :D

Yea I would think that the 205 tyres would rub with people in the back, especially when going over bumps. Other than that, 195/45 tyres would look a bit better too :cool:

Go for the 195s will look better, the profile is lower and being a bit narrower means less scrubage etc.

How much did you pay for tyres in the end then? Curious because I'll be needing to get some soon.
