Wheel size?

Post by Taz1400 » Wed Jun 13, 2018 11:13 am

Hi hope there's an expert to help. I have a b7 estate with 17 inch wheels, question is are 17 inch wheels from a b6 the same fitment? To put on my b7? Many thanks

Gloucestershire/West Midlands. On checking winter tires they seem to only go to V rating when mine states W. But V would invalidate insurance?

Are you planning on driving up to 149mph in the winter conditions? :hyst
