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.

Re: Tyre Width & Profile

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.
