    Tyre Question

    I currently have an Audi A3 1.6 Special Edition and need some new tyres.

    The one's that are currently fitted are 205/55, R16, W

    However on Kwik Fit and Halfords when I enter my reg number it says I need, 225/45, R17, H

    Which tyre size should I buy?

    well last i checked, 17" tyres wont fit on 16" wheels.

    kwik fit and halfords? youd be better off here.... Disney Store | Official Site for Disney Merchandise

    on a more serious note, try camskill or blackcircles.

    Check your handbook, or the sticker inside the drivers door......it will list the correct tyre sizes for your car.

    In the A3 owners manual it says 205/55, R16, W91 but I'm not sure whether this is just a generic print. I haven't got a sticker on the inside of the door

    my other half's 1.6 special edition has 205/55 r16, we normally stick Dunlop fast response on but the choice is yours

    Plus 1 for camskill, £64 for conti sport contact
