If you must go wider 215 45 17 is preferable because it's load rating is higher than the standard 88 unlike 215 40 17 which is lower ! 205 40 17 's load rating is also too low too
Continental have just released their Sport Contact 5 in 205 45 17 88w ! Probably the best tyre available in this size ! Bit expensive though

Re: grande punto mjet tyres

Looks like I need two new back tyres...

205/40/17s are so much cheaper than 205/45/17s any idea why!?

Currently got 205/45/17 potenzas but wanted Toyo T1's and cheapest I can find in 205/45/17 is like 113 a corner whereas 205/40s are 155 for two fitted!

Noticed the 40s are W speed rated and 84 load. Currently running Vs 88 is this an issue?

Because 205/40 is a much more common size. If you are going to change profile you really need to do all 4.

Re: grande punto mjet tyres

Found some Toyo's for 105 fitted. Any others you recommend under 100 fitted that are 205/45/17s?

Just a heads up for anyone based in the north, went to north eastern tyres and they quoted them fitted at 88 a tyre. Top service too. Their website was slightly more expensive than ringing up but still miles better than most places. www.nete.co.uk

Website says 97 fitted, they could have had my business a few months ago if they'd had 88 on their website. I ended up paying 80 each for mine from camskill, then postage + fitting makes it add up to 90 a tyre so can't complain really.

I rang up the Middlesbrough branch and they quoted them for less so that's good. The website prices fluctuate a lot from what I have seen, they stock so many tyres/brands I assume they get the go ahead to change prices on a regular basis.
