  1. Hi there people, I am new to the forum! :) Hi have recently purchased ST wheels off a 170 which have are 17" alloys with 215/45R17 Tyres. My current Focus Ebony 1.6 has 195/60R15 Tyres. The difference in diameter is 10mm extra tyre on the ST ones. That's all. There is a 1.67% difference in diameter between them. There offset will move 7mm closer in and 13mm outward. Are these ST wheels suitable for my car do you reckon without doing damage to the Transmission, differential etc. The tyre garage who I asked to fit the wheels for me said to ask the ford dealer before doing it, but they swouldn't say yes or no for liability reasons. What do you guys think. I would rather a healthy car than one that looks a bit better Many Thanks Hywel
