  6. Or another way of putting it is, of you get a set of 15" ford fitment wheel rims, the tyres you took from the Passat will be able to be fitted and the 15" tyre/rim combination can be fitted to your C Max Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  7. It's not saying that you can fit 15" tyres to 16" wheels. I'm sorry if I come across offensive, but common sense should prevail here. What the site you have linked to is saying is that there are a list of tyre sizes POSSIBLY fitted to a c max, the tyre size is relative to the wheel rim size. So when it states that 195/65R15 tyres are a possible fitment, it means that these are one of many sizes found on various models of C max, in this case the C max would have 15" wheel rims fitted. The only way you can get 15" tyres to fit 16" wheel rims is to cut an inch out of the inner diameter of the tyres, which IS NOT RECOMMENDED!! Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  13. So the problem was an incorrect exhaust valve fitted by previous owner(s)/mechanic. The valve was 1mm too short in total length, quite possible a tad thinner stem as well although I didn't have the means to measure that, just an assumption based on the oil getting into cylinder. I'm currently in the process of putting the engine all back together :) Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
