hmmm..... I might fit them up again on the weekend and take some photos and post them up here.

I spoke to Option 1 and the smallest legal tyre they can fit on it is a 235/40 without stretching a 215 or a 225. I'd prefer to stay fairly legal if I can get it to work. A 235 would buy me an extra 10mm on the outside over the 255.
