Hello

can you tell me what size alloy and tyre size you currently have fitted ? As there's few options
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Tyres on wheels at present are Bridgestone 235 60r 16 1000h

Hello Jeff

providing you come down in tyre size slightly then there should be no issue in going to a 17" rim

as the current diameter your're running is 688m, so going to a 235/55 R17 = 690mm

the wheel width and offset needs to be the same as you're currently running to avoid any issues with wheelarch clashing ( standard is -5mm)
