215? Actually I think they are 225? ;-)

Some closer shots plus down the side of the car. I have no problems with these catching at all although the extra front camber does help

A smaller wheel will provide greater acceleration but lower top speed, assuming the same weight.

Cant see the logic :confused: anyone running 17's would run 225 45 17 or there speedo would be out? You could run 35 profile on an 18 to achieve the same result without having a smaller wheel.

Run a lighter 17 and you will get more acceleration than running lower profile

Agreed.

You have the weight of a 17' wheel plus a 225/45/17 tyre

vs

18' 225/40/18 tyre
19' 225/35/19 tyre

so your looking at 1-2kg weight saving per wheel
