Edited, damn dislexyia :(

I saw you were selling the AD08's and wanted some others in 205/45 R16.....? You will be 20.5mm lower and have 20.5mm more wheelgap on the same suspension settings due to the change in tyre diameter (631.9mm to 590.9mm)
Fuck me... How do you work this shit out ??:eek:hmy:

Popularity of tyre, i've just had 4 of them in 205/40 and they were double the price in the 215/40 I wanted.

I am thinking about going for some federal 595rs-r in 215/45/17 these would be ideal for me I think as they would reduce a bit of the wheel gap and give me some extra height for the speed bumps to and from work in London. However, I am not sure if they are going to look a bit chunky, anyone had these on there R56 (I know MTR use them and gave them a very good review) I believe that they also come in 215/40/17 but that would only give me a little more height over my 205/40/17.

Any thoughts? they are under £100 a corner on camskill:

yeah that's where I read positive things about these tyres, the group buy prices were quite similar to what I can get them for so no to worried about that, just wanted to know if people think it might look to chunky as its not a "race car".

Aah, ok.
Am interested in them myself, I had a gander at them when at MiniCraft and I get what you mean, they do look sort of "bulbous" or over inflated!
Personally would go for handling over looks however, although I am chugging around on rubber band 40s ATM so would be one extreme to the other :lol:

Something not to go with... Don't bother with Avon ZZ3's. I didn't think it was possible to drift a Mini... It is and in the wet they just let go...

looking to get a set of hankook v12 evo k110 tyres for my 17 inch alloys.
any views on these tyres?
I'm on V12's - TBH they aren't a bad tyre, pretty good dry grip and predictable in the wet. Looks like they will last about 10-12k miles, you will get more

Mine are 205/40 on 17's and they are a bit hard, would go for a bigger sidewall next time (also helps with the anti-wheelgap quest)

Would have thought you'd be better with a 205/45 than 215 on your car

£ for £ they are hard to beat, paid about £65 ea. for mine from Camskills
