    Variation in tyre width - Vredestein - Vredestein

    Had some new Vredestein Vorti fitted recently. Replaced Vredestein Sessanta. Both 265/35/18 Surprised at the difference in width - although these were unmounted. Didn't get a shot of them mounted side by side I guess when they are both fitted they are of a more similar width?!

    Not All Tyres Are Equal Width!

    A tip I picked up from another forum and checked myself. I have the same size tyres on the C270 and the front of my 968 - namely 205 55 R16. Flaken FK452's on the C270, Pirelli P6000's on the 968. Falkens are only slightly wider than the rim, Pirellis are a good 1/2" wider - thus rim has some...

    E350 Sport Saloon - driver footwell width.

    I've just returned from a test drive of a new E350 Sport saloon and was very impressed. It pushed all the right buttons for me, except one.

    Staggered wheel sizes on S211 (diameter and width)

    Does anyone know if there's any "technical" reason why I would not be able to put 17" (245 tyres?) wheels on the rear of my S211 whilst keeping the original 16s (225 tyres) at the front? To me, it's only at the rear that the car seems a little "under-wheeled". I've seen a few cars with this...

    Any experience with same tyres on different width rims?

    My CLK is fitted with 17" AMG alloys. The rear rims are wider than the fronts (8.5" compared to 7.5", I believe). The correct tyres should be 225/45 ZR17 and 245/40 ZR17 respectively, but can you fit the same tyre profile on all four rims? Has anyone done this, and were there any problems or...
