    hi everybody
    the spare wheel i have for the s3 has got 125/70/ r 18 tyre on it, is it possible to put a bigger tyre on it so its the same size as the 19" wheels i have on the car?
    when next to each other there doesnt look like a lot of difference in the size so would this be possible?
    or would i need a 19" space saver wheel?
    thanks for any help in advance!

    You shouldn't need a different sized space saver as the rolling radius should remain the same no matter if you are using 225/45/17 or 225/40/18 or 235/35/19....

    Tuffty, is 225/45/17 the standard profile on the 17" Avus rims?

    if using a 235/35/19 the diffeence is only 2.57%
