Hey all im new here and new to the mini. Im looking to get a set of 17" alloys and was wondering if 205/40/17 tyres are a good fit for the mini, as i have a set of proxes this size in the garage. Failing that am i right in thinking 205/45/17s are whats needed?

Cheers in advance

Welcome to MINI2 ...

The Tire Statistics list 21 users running 205/40-17 tires. As long as the load rating is 84 or higher and you're not concerned about having less sidewall protection against potholes, you can run this size.

OEM tire size is 205/45-17.
