I picked up my 58 plate JCW yesterday and super pleased.
However, I know I need to put some new tyres on it and I'm now looking for guidance / opinion. It has Pireli PZero run flat 205/40/18's on it.
Research would suggest switching to non-run flat tyres for better handling etc, however my question is, can I move to 215 over 205 and can I go up to 45 rather than 40 - to give more comfort and choice?
I replaced all the 205/45/17 Pirelli Runflat tyres on my MINI with Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 215/40/17 non runflats (near same overall diameter) with no problems.
You can use internet tyre calculators to see change in diameter, etc. Tyre Size Calculator - Changing Tyres - Etyres
