    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

    He is basically just telling you he is not experience denough to do it and is scared to damage the wheel.
