I went to fit the ascari's lastnight and the front tyres are too wide frown
there 245x30x20" all around (thought I would get away with that)

Options:-

1. Sell wheels and start again
2. Buy new 225x30 front tyres and run the risk of a tyre fitter stuffin my rims fitting them.
3. Have the arches pulled and rolled (unsure of price)





What ya think?? BEaring in mind Im on a tight budget

Paul

loadsa room at the rear, as its not that low.

front 225 tyres are gunna be 140 each.,plus fitting. But these wheels arnt the strongest and with my car being a daily driver I need some strength in them, hence the bigger tyre.


Dont wanna spend 120 on an arch roll/pull too find they still wont fit.
