215s should fit on the alternate wheels, pretty sure my Fiat coupe alloys were 6.5 and wore 225.

    205s on the black wheels, they're 6.4 inches wide as opposed to 7 inch standard :thumb:

    I'll have to double check mine, I was sure I've got 215's on mine.

      One of the mechanics at work has just shown me what you get inside a bridgestone tyre. there is lots of rubber shavings and cracks. one crack looks like the kind of damage you get on the side wall but on the inside? The outside looks completely ok! The shavings i guess come from that damage?

    nasty!
    1st ,Autobianchi A112 Abarth 1050 70HP  5 speed . gone but not forgotten..........
    Then, GPA alternative wheels,climate control, leather, Hi Fi , RED like really RED,no smoker's kit good.
    Now,595 Competizione,record grey,yellow calipers and interscope . 
    I see a pattern emerging here.......

    That's what you get for running under inflated tyres.....outside ok ....inside knackered

    Found out Bridgestones aren't great in snowy conditions, I can see why some people fit winter tyres.

    What tyres did DQ have on?  :whistle:

    888s

    I like the pirellis. On my 500
    But now have Michelin on now.
