A little help from members that are clued up on wheels.....
#1
I currently run a 2014 XTR multispace, Semi automatic.

I have tried doing the research myself, but just wondered from the collective if i have overlooked something important.

On my XTR i am running 205/65/15 tyres on stock steel wheels and have the chance of very good condition Citroen DS3 Clover design 17inch with 205/45/17 tyres.

After looking around on the internet, i'm sure these are going to fit fine ??  but on a tyre rolling radius comparison site it mentions the difference in speed at 70mph the actual speed is 68.85 mph, is this something i should be worried about or is there something i have forgot like will it effect the automatic gears ??

Hoping somebody can advise.....

It's nothing to worry about as the wheel get's bigger the profile of the tyre goes down  have a look at 205 /40/17 see if that put's it right. Smile 1.15 out is not bad
                                     Smile  It's too orangey for crow's It's just for me and my dog  Smile

The wheel and tyre combination i have been offered is no good, looking at this :
http://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Tire-Size.../205-55R17

I need to go more for a 205 / 50 / 17

Plan B  Confused

Just go to a different site there are plenty on line or look on ebay find the wheels you like look for a phone number on the bottom of the page give the a ring 55/50 profile is to high with 17 you need some thing like 40/45.

For future reference, 205/50r17 keeps the rolling radius bang on pretty much and is the correct size for the 17” tyre size vs the 195/65r15

No speedo is 100% accurate. This is why the law allows 3% for inaccuracy in the design . Just be careful with your insurance , let them know you've changed your wheels .  If it helps my own car ,a MK  1 Berlingo is reading 5 mph an hour fast at 70 , better that way than reading low as that could mean that your potentially doing 75 at 70 mph .

Use the speed on a sat nav or phone app to check your actual speed, you will see the difference between actual and speedo reading at various speeds. GPS is more accurate than speedometer which can read as much as 10% under your actual speed but you are not allowed any leeway in the other direction. If your speedo reads 70 when you are doing 75 you are going to have problems. There is no 3% allowance on speed limits this is entirely up to whoever is operating the speed trap and the magistrate on the day whether you get pulled and fined..
So where does this bit go then ?
