Ok , I picked up a set of C70 Sadrias from a fellow swedespeeder. This was due in part of wanting uniqueness as well as an oem look for europes biggest Volvo show next month.... failed to do my reasearch , these are the same as Sparticus just 0,5 wider and 45mm insted od 52,5mm offset. <p>Still love the wheels , even though they're hardly unique <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>OK, enough of that. my question is I know Tom has this same combo (different C70 wheel but Same size offset etc.) and he eventually went with the 225 45 17s , I'm leaning toward this as well as a 215 50 17. <p>Want to know from those lowered fwd people who did this , what size did you go with and any problems? <p>There are 4 sizes 205 50, 215 50, 225 45 and 235 45 that I could go with, I'm almost ruling out the 235 45 unless of course one or more of you have run this sans problem<p>please let me know

Re: Another tire/wheel question( sorry not newbe ) (V50_T5)

Those are 17x7.5 right? A 225/45 with 45mm offset wont rub if you're lowered. You could probably get away with a 40 offset before you should be concerned. I would go with whatever is cheaper, 215 or 225. I would think 225 would be since 225/45 is very common<p>I was really hoping you would get Mirzams! Those are definitely my second favorite OEM wheel next to yours trulys <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
