u know coley dont ya??

he took a big hammer to his and i think thats the only way, i would imagine.

the arch lining on the front would abviously need to be taken out and most off the arch would need cutting away.

i aint sure on the rears i never really had a look.

there was a cinq on here who had 17's on it, they looked very nice, i dont know if u ever seen it, a green/purple flipped one with r5 kit on, its now been sold but i think she comes back on here every so often, so u may be in luck

A company called Xtreme in Harlow put them on for her (hippycinq) I believe, this may not be correct but I know that they have put 19"s on a Cinq so they would be able to handle 17"s. I'm gonna phone them up soon because I have found a valid performance-ish enhancing way to put 16"s on a Cinqy ... hehehe - any excuse eh?
I don't know the phone number but they do have a website if you can find it.
HTH,
Matt
