my tyre size is a bit odd actually. im gonna get 195/40/16s.
the advantages of having these instead of 195/45/16s are:
*its got the same rolling circumference as the 14" ones ford supply it with.
*i wont need to change the gear ratios
*accelaration will still be pretty much the same (slow)
*they shouldnt rub on the arches

disadvantages are:
*only pirelli, dunlop and continental make them and they cost a fortune (90quid each)
*it'll beharsh ride -now that ive got my new springs and dampers (which lower it 40mm)

but apart from that....its all fun and games laugh

mad i wont b e getting my alloys for a few weeks now mad
the guy said he'd have them in for me today....but he phoned and said a fornight mad

Ben, get the 45s mate, only difference you'll notice is that they'll be closer to the arches. You won't notice the loss in acceleration mate trust me. The difference in size between the 40s and the 45s will be just under 2cm in total height.
