    Default New wheels best tyre size

    Evening everyone! Iíve just brought some new Pro Race 1.2s. Iím planning on swapping my tyres over from my Old ultra lites. Old spec was 7.5x17 and the new ones are 8x17. Will my 215/45/17 be ok on a 8j rim???

    I had 215 on 8j Pro race 1.2s when I bought them for my fn2, they were stretched.

    What would be best? Maybe a 235/40? Or 225/45?

    ET38 offset. They look a lot wider compared to my other 7.5j but they were ET42 so it’s to be expected I suppose.
    I’ve just checked the Civic Cup site & it seems that they run a 215/45/17 on a 8j Rota rim ��
