Would this tire size fit on the front of a 2006 Elise?


Recommended Posts

Currently it has 215/40R17. The tire manufacturer of choice doesn't make that size. The closest one is a 205/45 which would have a 1/2 inch greater diameter. Would that size fit the front wheel wells?

@atikovi Try this website: https://www.willtheyfit.com/

This is what it came up with based on a 17 inch wheel with the factory offset of 31mm for the front wheels of the Toyota powered Elise. I used the 195/50 R16 tyre size as fitted to my Elise R as the baseline.

That's interesting @atikovi. Are you running a square setup with 17" wheels all round on your Elise, or a staggered one with 17"front and 18" rear wheels?

Thanks @atikovi 👍

What wheel rim offsets are you running?
