The Blue Box is the rolling circumference of a standard wheel/tyre size (215/65R15) and the green boxes are the other sizes which are within 2.5% of the standard, which is acceptable with the law and also speed cameras.

Now I was thinking that you could, within reason, put any tyre on any wheel.

So a 15" rim could have any tread, any manufacturer but as long as it had tread, then it was good. I thought 'fit for purpose' meant something else.

Interesting and useful stuff there. Thanks guys. :D

Still amazed that a guy KNOWING that he was driving on old, dodgy tires in his newly collected Mercedes-Benz, felt it was OK to set off on a 250 mile journey on them, and then endanger everyone else's safety on the road, by driving at 70mph on them!! Speechless!! :(
