I'm going to try fit mine tonight I think, 17 steels like yours
What pressure are you running the tyres at btw?
I think my tyres aren't the perfect/recommended size mind you, but they do fit, I'm assuming the pressure won't need to be much different

I'm running 2.5bar rear and 2.3 fronts, on 225/45/17 94v Vredstein Wintrac Extreme.

Have found these a very good cold weather tyre, working well on cold greasy tarmac.Snow and slush are no problem..
