Hi

Booked my car in to get 285/35 on all 4 wheels, did it through blackcircle tyres and one of there local shops.

Took the car down and they said they can only do the back as its supposed to be 255 on the front, I explained that a few people on here have 285 square setup but they wouldn't put them on for me.

They said something along the lines of the alloy not fitting 285 on the front, I assumed that the tyres would fit ok as other people have done it but now I'm wondering if I need to also change the alloys to do it?

Can anyone tell me what else I need to do to get 285's all round.

Thanks
Matthew

Less chimp like tyre fitters?
Think you might be right, this all sounds very similar to when I tried to get non run flats on my Z4, in the end I told them I would sign a disclaimer saying something along the lines of "I wont sue when I go spinning off into a hedge backwards".

I've spoken to blackcircles.com and they refuse to do it.

They said the wheels will rub and wont sit properly,

They said they have had problems with this car and these sizes before.

All sounds like BS to me but nevermind.
