whats your current size tyre?

mk1 needs a 45 profile as missy says.

mk2 and mk2b you can get a 50 iirc. think you can go up to 17s

You have actually got a mk2 haven't you (just checked your other posts)

mog is right...on a mk2 15" should be fitted with a 50 (y)

good idea! im surprised they changed them! what too?

I can't remember what now...RSR said they are the same spec..but look different..and im a fussy cow :eek: :slayer:

So til i can find a matching one, I think i will shove my standard sporting ones on...cos they have all new tyres :)

even if you went bigger with the wheels the difference in the speedo is only very small, (hardly even noticable), I recon it would knock it out by about 2-3mph at a speed of 60ish, I tried it with my civic after going from 15-17ins wheels and i have analog speedo, digital speedo and GPS speedo and there was only a really small difference.,
