    Tyre choice

    Rears on my bora need new tyres an wanting some stretch
    Currently have 245/40/17
    Thinking of 205/40's as seen a few recomend this for 9 wide
    Or was gonna be brave and go 195

    195! Christ!

    215 is a nice stretch on a 9, that's what was on the ZW1's I tried.



    Forget what profile they are

    205's will work....Paul W ran a set of 195's on a set of 9's once....looked bonkers!

    Those rims sat so well on the back but the front looked uber gay!

    The porka's are 8's on the rear running 195/45r16. Think the fronts need 40's to even it out. Can go lower then too...

    Re: Tyre choice

    or the other thing i could do is put the front tyres which are 215/45 on the back as there pretty much new as lad had them put on when i bought car
    and then put new 195/40`s on the front
