    Zainey, welcome to the forum

    The M3 normally comes with a smaller tyre on the front anyway

    225/4517 rolling radius is 317.15mm/1992.71mm circumference

    215/4017 rolling radius is 301.90mm/1896.89mm circumference

    The difference in circumference is -95.82mm or -4.81%

    If these tyres were fitted to the axle that the speedometer works from then when your speedo reads 70mph you will be travelling at 66.63mph.

    215/4517 rolling radius is 312.65mm/1964.44mm circumference

    The difference in circumference is -28.27mm or -1.42%

    Again if these tyres were on the axle that the speedometer works from then when your speedo reads 70mph your actual speed would be reading 69.01mph.

    The above information tells us that the tyre you would like to fit is undersized for your vehicle and the recommended tyre size for the front would be a 215/4517.

    19's you cheeky git

    Why would I have A20 RYM as a number plate if I had 19's. I've got A19 RYM on the missus Zafira because that's got 19" wheels on it

    When my speedo reads 70 mph i'm actually travelling at 72.46mph

    Standard size 205/6015 rr=313.5mm/1969.78mm circ

    235/3020 rr=324.5mm/2038.89mm circ

    Difference in circumference is 69.11mm or 3.51%

    My fronts are 225/3020 rr=321.50mm/2020.04mm circ

    Difference in circumference is 50.26mm or 2.55% If they were fitted to the rear axle then when the speedo reads 70mph the car would actually be travelling at 71.79mph.

    10 years in the wheel and tyre trade has taught me a thing or two hence the reason that my car was the first car in the UK to have 20" wheels fitted without an arch type body kit or arch modifications ( as stated by Redline magazine when they featured it ). Three in the rear, boot full of ice and lowered to the lowest setting the H&R coilovers will go to and still no scrubbing......... If a job's worth doing then it;s worth doing RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!
