Tyres for Sei; Abarth Wheels

Hello,

Anybody have any idea of anywhere in Yorkshire that sells 175/50/14's?
I've put it in a few search engines on tyre websites and none can find any.
Needs two back tyres v.soon. EEK!

How well do they fit?
What is the effect of having the back tyres this size and 175's on the front?

fit fine. they save ur alloys too.

you'll get more grip on the rears with them being wider.
its the same setup as mine.. 175's on front.. 185's on rear.

No it's not! On the same axle it is an MOT failure and in some case dangerous but i've run the same in the past so it's perfectly legal.

I'm with Liam - there are a number of supercars out there that run different tyres front and back, although none come to mind right now....lol.....
