235/40/17 vs 215/40/17 for an E30
 
I need a new set of 17" tires for my 17x7.5 ET20 Wheels.

The last set I had was 215/40/17 and I thought they fit and looked great.

Problem is easily finding that size of tire locally. What do you think of a set of 235/40/17s instead?

They seem to be a more common size and hence easier to find.



PS> I'd prefer to pick up a set in the GTA and would like to avoid rolling fenders if possible.

Fender pull needed.

215/40 is also a lot more common than 235/40.

Fit mine no problem, with a bit of room to spare.

At an offset 10mm higher, and on an early car. ;)

Ah ok, you mean specifically for his fitment, yeah that's true, I had net ET30.

Any recommendations on where to source locally?

I spent a ton on these rims, don't want them scratched or nicked in the mounting process.
