I have a new Yeti out of Czech Republic (Outdoor Ambition Premium 1.6 TDI DFP 105PS 4x2 DSG Greentec) on the Certificate of conformity it states that the Yeti is fitted with 215/55/R17 wheels, however a footnote states that due to the GreenTec Emmissions rules it has been fitted with 205/50/R16 wheels, which look lost on a Yeti. How do smaller wheels reduce the emmissions and can I change them for bigger ones? (Given the emmissions scandal)
Hi, Dave Jackson,If possible,I think 17'' will be better.If changed smaller wheels,It may reduce the emmission because smaller wheels will decrease the second distance which lower the speed.
...not sure on what’s the best / biggest / widest / maximum tires or rims will fit your car?
Write about the tires you are currently driving on.
