Anyone running 225/55/15 rear tyres on regular alloys (mk2 15")?

Spotted these: Uniroyal R440 Rallye - 225/55/R15 Z TL

www.camskill.co.uk/products.php?show=97516

I checked the tyre comparison and is is within 3.63 difference in diametre but they recommend no different than 2.5% so unsure what to do...


Anyone know if 225/55/R15 will fit ok in the rear of a mk2?

I'm nearly sure I had 225/60/15 on the rear of mine, but I can't check cause they're sold....

Maybe ask over on imoc...

Yes, but they don't look right to me.

Finally decided on Uniroyal Rallye 440 225/55/15 tyre. Its not exactly what I wanted ie the 55 profile but the price was good and they should be good on our damp roads in the west. Now all there is to do is test them out. Here is the link:
