    Lol at that bot... Good job the mods are on it

    You need to know the offset, rim diameter and obviously stud pattern to check if they are suitable. But if the are on 205s, I would say they are too narrow

    they will be fine on your car if the offset is about et 35, not as wide as I'd want on my s3 but it's only 20mm

    I got a pair of 215/40/17 452's in my boot to be put on tomorrow. I hate the size of the side wall on the standard wheels and there is far to much flex in them too that's whys ive dropped down a size.

    You will notice a big difference visual and notice you will have less flex in your tyres in the corners but probably not as comfy lol.

    225/45/17 side wall will be 101.25mm high and a 205/40/17 side wall will be 82mm high but probably even less than that as the tyre maybe stretched a bit due to the with of the wheel, will look nice.

    To upload a pic you need to copy the IMG file of the pic you want to upload from photobucket or facebook is you have either and just paste it in your post. I think thats how you do it lol, havent uploaded a pic for a while.
