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.
