172 Tyres.

So, after having AD08's on my 200, I was looking to get some on my newly acquired 172. However, I can't seem to find any in the correct size. Currents are 195/45/16 I believe, any thoughts? I want 4, as close to £400 as possible.

These will be road and track tyres.


Thanks

Its bloody annoying you can't get AD08's in 195/45/16, Else I'd have a pair.

You can get them in 205/45/16, which is the tyre size of 182's. Will rub a bit if lowered/spaced though.

Otherwise theres plenty of choice depending on how sticky you actually want.

I've bought some 205/45/16 AD08's. I think I'm lowered 30ml on Eibach springs, reckon I'll rub? I'm not spaced at all, reckon that'd help?

It'll only rub on the arch liners, but I guess your be removing those?

Soon find out!

I have just fitted these to mine, like kyle says. Normal driving it doesn't catch, but on full lock it catches on the bumper bracket.

I'm lowered on coilovers and non spaced.

Does it catch badly? My main worry is they'll be alright for track :)

Can easily bend the bumper bracket out of the way without issue.

Arch liners will wear away, or be cut away as per mine.

You'll have no issues at all. Arch liner has worn slightly, but it's fine. It's only slightly catching, and you'll have no issues with it. It'll be fine for track.
