How much of a bad idea would it be to put 17's on a mk1. I'd lower the profile to keep the overall measurements similar. I've read how it can ruin ride/handling/lovelife/etc, just wondered if it's as bad as everyone says. It's just that as my GF keeps telling me it all about the inches.

Cheers

I run a Mk1 on 17's and find it fine. I used to run 15's and sure you get less tyre wall compliance on lower profile tyre but honestly, I can barely tell the difference in day to day driving or b road blasting.

Some may say different, but at my ride height / suspension set up, I think 17's are fine. Oh, and just because I like to whore it out, here's what I went with.
