    Thanks Jon, as you say, def want the V-rating on the tyres.
    Don't think i can fit the 275s on the Crendon, so will prob go for the 255s. Have been googling exact tyre dimensions - seems the Galaxy 255 is 1mm taller diameter than a AvonCR 245, and 9mm wider.
    With Galaxy 235s up front (I already have these fitted on the donor wheels, so 2 will get swapped over - its a long story) and 255s rear there will be 8mm difference in height front to rear, which i think isn't worth worrying about.

    8mm difference is not noticeable and you can adjust the shocks with a few turns.I know with 60 side wall the ride is a lot softer than 17 inch wheels with a lower profile plus I think the taller side wall looks better IMO.
    It transforms the look of the car and stance with the correct tyre wall filling the arch profile.
    I put the white lettering on the inside as they are none directional. My preference.

    North Hants Tyres were very helpful. Even offered to change tyres if I was not happy with them once they were on car.(provided they weren’t damaged)

    I took my wheels there too Kev. Real nice people. Fun watching them have to use a bead blaster to seat the tyres!

    Been given the sp: hoot on arrival, will have to wait outside while the job is done.
    Glad to see they are taking good Covid precautions.

    The tyre fitter I used said without one you would struggle to get the tyre to stretch onto the rim.
