I remember reading somewhere here that 17 inch wheels wont work on a Fuego.
If you use suitable lower profile tyres to retain rolling diameter, what would the problem be?
The reason I'm asking is I have stalled with my search for 16 inchers. There are plenty of wheels available, but tyres are few and far between for a 205/45 16" with a suitable load rating. Fuego's need an 88 rated tyre, and I have only been able to find 1. This will present problems in the future.
And I dont want to go for a 15 unless I have to.
If you use a lower rated tyre, it is defectable. If you have a prang and your insurance company finds out - they dont have to pay out. I have checked with rego authorities in WA, SA and VIC and they all just laughed when I mentioned getting a lower load rating approved.
Any ideas anyone???
