Tyres size calculator
« on: 18 September 2011, 16:16 »
If your fitting new rims (or swapping tyres) here's a handy calculator to check if they will effect clearance or speedo readings

http://www.etyres.co.uk/tyre-size-calculator.htm

e.g

205/50x15 = 586mm diameter
205/40x17 = 596mm diameter
215/35x18 = 608mm diameter

Not on the road enough mk3
