Why not go 215/40? My Audi, smart, vw all have that size weirdly so I have a stock pile of extras and they're dead easy and cheap to find. Been using the nangkan ns-20's with success. . And $68/tire and lasts longer then the s-drives I'm not complaining.Going with a higher profile isn't a problem unless your smart is lowered or if your running larger rims. The wheel gap for the smarts are massive so not much problems with clearance. Just measure before you buy.

(Wheels are 17x6 front & 17x7.5 rear)Those are very easy to find hereI want "not to thin" tyres for the roads here are run down :(I have no modification done on my car and it is impossible to find 195/40r17 here:(Thank you so much for your insights!

Honestly. I had never figuered out the shipping cost from 1010. How do they charge the tax then? 13%? Then two of 215/35/17 going to be 396.
