Tyre Width & Profile

Hi,

My manual says to use a width profile of 205/55 they are 16 inch tyres what if I go lower or higher will it make a different to my wheel balancing? Do they have to be the same for MOT purposes?

Thanks.

If you change any tyres you will need to balance them .You must have the same size tyres / wheels on the same axle for MOT.
