    As above 205 should be fine in fitting on the car, think the more common size to use generally would be the 215 though but don't quote me.

    sure someone will tell me if im wrong though....

    205 is standard on EP3's so it should be fine.


    215 is commonly used by EP3 owners though due to the increased stability or something.

    i use 205 45 17, bridgestone potezzas on sotck CTR alloy, works perfect. 215 will give that extra grip, which i have heard from others! What tyre brand are u going for?

    shuaib, i am not saying that company is a scam. But i had a mate which he own the same car as you and brought a set of alloys from them. He realised the wheels were buckle two hrs after the delivery time. So, he call back alloywheels.com and start f*cking them big them and the rest. He end up had all his money refund back to his account. Becareful!!!

    Prob best going 205 45 17 or if u want a smaller side wall then go for 205 40 17 ( tho i warn you, you get old women walking past saying 'you got a flat tyre' lmao)


    Hope you get the tyres you want. I've had continental sports on mine had no probs. Toyo T1-R's in a 205/45/17 are about
