just got some s**t old tyres chucked on today to keep the plod of my bum and realised after i got them home to chuck back on my car one is a 215/60/15 and the other is a 205/65/15,how bad are the different profiles gonna affect my diff,ive heard it can destry it ,lsd is f**k so maybe i should just smoke em up and then swap them over again with the 195/60/15s i got there,might look a bit funny though

yes true but with the 205/65/15 the 65 stands for 65% if the 205 if that makes sence...so in the 215/60 its a bit smaller percent of the 215

i thought that the 65 would mean 65mm from the rim or the bead of tyre,either way one is lower then the other,is it gonna destroy my diff in a week

well what i would do is put the 215 on the left and the 205 on the right due to the camber on the road
