    Help needed for my 9x19 Bentley splits.

    Hi guys

    I've just picked up a set of mint 9x19 Bentley Split rims as pictured below. Now from reading on here i understand that the tyre needed to fit these on the A3 is a 215/35/19. I've just been down to my local tyre place to get some tyres fitted and the guy there refused to fit that tyre size saying that its dangerous to put a 215/35 on a rim any wider than 8 1/2" wide. i argued with him that there are plenty of cars running this tyre size but he just kept refusing to fit them.

    Does anyone know of where i could go that will fit stretched tyres for me, i'm based in the south wales area but will travel if not too far.

    Thanx
