Just got a new set of alloys for the 33, and seams i have a option, 205 40 16 normal tyres, or 195 40 16 streched.

Apart from the looks, what be the benefit of stretched tyres? or is it not beneficial at all? I have no idea or understanding of it, please help....

Don't do it, not only does it look silly but I'd hazard a guess it's rather dangerous like.

A while ago, motorists with stretched tyres were being pulled over and done for the car being dangerous and booking them for driving without due care and attention :)

Fit the normal 205s, or go with 215s if you can ;)

Does that not also affect the radius, should it not be 195 45 16 to keep it similar?
