Not too sure. It would depend also on whether there is any scrubbing of the tyres when on full lock.

I am interested in this topic (for 16" and also for 17" wheel) as when I compare the speed indicated on the speedo with that of the GPS speed on my phone it reads 10% high. I would love the speedo to be more accurate.

As a matter of interest, why do you want to change the size? Have you managed to find some but they are a different size? The only thing I would say is that as long as they are all the same size all round, and as long as they don't foul the bodywork, it's probably not much of an issue if they are close to original. If they are much different though they could affect the handling.

Well I'm certainly no tyre expert, but I doubt whether you would have any problems there, as long as you fit all four. Definitely don't mix them, not even different sizes front to back. The speedo reading might be very slightly different to what you have been used to, but I doubt it would be much. It might not even be noticeable.

Suggest using this as it shows the smaller profile is 22mm smaller dia i.e. -3.1% which seems quite a lot of difference.

Less than 1" in diameter is not a big difference in tyre size.
