So, just been round the testers and failed on the tires.. thank god as I was waiting for a reason to eliminate the cheap Landsails.

Anway, they are 225/50/17 all around .. but when I type the reg into Black Circles they are prompting me to select 245/45/17 all around (for 17" wheels).

Where does this leave me? I assume the narrower tyres were stretched on, which could be part the reason for the inner exposure (or tracking/balancing).

Can I comfortable go ahead and look for 245s or do I need to check the wheel sizes, on the off chance that the wheels aren't what came from the factory?

Thanks

Going to fit new pads+discs all around too.. but delighted it didn't fail on something like emissions which was cause for concern due to the oil it has been burning.

I’d check the wheel sizes but 245 sounds right - what’s in the fuel filler / manual?
