    I had a 215 tyre on a 8.5J alloy and I failed due to incorrect tyre size. I would not call them stretched really, but the outer edge of the alloy was outside the bead of the tyre, that was enough to fail me. A 225 tyre is acceptable on a 8.5J. I failed on a few other reasons so i reckon i got a .

    Ouch. I have a 215/35 on a 9j and 235 on a 10j

    Haha, unfortunately going by the fact mine failed, that will fail 100%. But then again everything is subjective depending on the tester. Mine was 215/45 so even the 35 will add more of a stretch to yours

    This is exactly what mine looks like

    I'm not going to do anything to mine and just go to a different test centre, am 80% sure it will pass the second time round with a different tester.

    Jesus that's a bit much, I wouldn't even call that a stretch. Think it'll just be a matter of raise up to max height, stock wheels on for test, and back to normal.

    Exactly, but the edge of the tyre is inside the edge of the rim. That's what I was told as to why my tyres failed.
