Hi All, for those running 275/40/21 tyres, as you know they carry a premium.. 275/45/21s are a bit easier to come by and hence better priced.. Just had 4 Conti's fitted, no issues, negligible speedo change.. 70 reads 71 via GPS.. and you get a bit more sidewall.. :)

Did the same a few years ago, you just have to remember that if you use it the spare will only be good for the shortest of journeys to get a tyre repaired.
