    These are 14 inchers or 15 inchers?? Looks great though....
  2. please check the correct upsize... i think 205/45/R17 is not correct it should be 215/45/R17 or 225/40/R17

    Both sizes you mentioned foul big-time with the wheel arcs, the perfect upsize to 17" is 205/45/17.

    No overstatement @sunilmh but these are one of the best multispoke designs I have ever come across. Your BNW beauty looks fabulous.

    The perfect size would be 215/45/17 and it works quite fine. 377312_10151244650844257_991907755_n.jpg . enclosed pic of my car which sports the same profile. IF you are very particular about looks and have good roads then you can use 215/40/17. 225 profiles have also been used in puntos as of my knowledge but havent tried it out. I have been using 215 wiith no issues for the past one year and done 20K already with these set of tires.

    Brand is of individual choice. I have used Nexen as it is on the lighter side of the pocket. A much more premium choice would be Yokohoma AR01., Sonar is another brand which is econimical.
    Premium brands include Hankook Evo V6, Michellien Sport and Pirelli which would cost u 11 k upwards for a tire.

    Nothing particularly wrong with 215/45/17 only that it presents a 1.7% error as opposed to 205/45/17 0.2%. Thereby it seems more appropriate a fit. but I faced a very strange issue(215/45/17) as to the rear arc hit the rear tires on bumpy sections of the road, due to which I switched back to 205/45/17.
