even more confusing that tyres are metric and imperial (ie 16" 225/45/16)

why would anyone do that!!!

yes you do get 100% metric wheels and tyres, but mixing units of measure is wrong!!!

if you are really bored you could go read a few pages relating to wheel sizes and offsets then you will be head up bum!

Also the Width of a wheel is measured across where the tyre sits - not the total width of the wheel.

Add about an inch to the width to get the total Wink

should be the same as yours OBD2..

its really easy to tell the difference if you know what your looking for!

all obd means is the diagnostics port type and communication language, but on the switch over they also changed the engine wiring and emission control system i think.
