    they would fit but handling would go out the window,  plus the tyre would over hang the rim, i would not do it
    want is standard cos in the book its says 215/45/r17 and 205/45/r17

    215 is standard, 205 is on the optional black wheels which are a bit narrower :thumb:

    They do fit although you may need spacers.

    On the similar subject: I was thinking of winter tyres, but preferably on a smaller wheels (for the lower cost). Do you think that 195/55/R16 would fit? The book doesn't mention it...
