On the Tyresave web page it recommends staying within 2.5% of original overall tyre diameter.

This is shown as 24.2" with (A) 185/70 14" or 25.3" with (B) 205/70 14"

The difference shown on the calculator thingy between (A) and (B) is 4.55%

This is making my head hurt!... so are Tyresave saying that is a bigger increase than they recommend ?

If so... Is that being over-cautious?

Any comments please....
