Re: black alloys on new orleans blue gp?

you'll probably need a lower profile tyre (205/40/17) so that your overall rolling radius wont change. If the wheels are heavier than standerd then you probably will loose a bit of performance and risk damaging the gearbox/driveshafts although there are people on here with 1.2s and 17 inch alloys. In regards to whether the alloys you talk about suit your car,its up to you!

Depends how you drive. Search and you will see what everyone says about running with 17s on a 1.2
