Question Question regarding a roadworthy on an Mk II Escort with 165's front & 175's rear...

Just wondering if anybody knows if I'll have trouble getting a roadworthy on my 1976 Mk II Escort with the tyres it currently has fitted... The tyres in question have TONS of tread left (all practically new), but the fronts are 165's (13's) and the rears are 175's (13's) - is this likely to be a problem with getting the roadworthy or getting it registered?

Thanks in advance.

I presume the wheels are the same size and offset all the way around. I don't see why it would be a problem, but I'm not up to speed on roadworthy's in VIC. It would pass in the ACT.

Should be ok (on standard wheels I presume) so long as all are the same (or close enough) diameter, eg 165/75 & 175/70. Years ago (~8) I had my car roadworthied with 185/70 front, 195/65 rear on standard 14x5 rims.

Yep, the wheels are all the same size (13 inch), they're all on stock standard rims, the only differences are the aspect ratio (75 front, 70 rear, from memory, the car isn't here for me to go and look at right now) and the tread patterns. both the front tyres are exactly the same as each other, and both the rears are the same as each other. Seems like that won't be a problem them, lets hope not anyway...
