My 2001 Bravo 1.2 80 Failed On Its Mot As They Couldnt Test Some Stuff Due To Wheels Being To Big And The Bodykit Getting It The Way When Jacked Up. So I Brought Some Steel Wheels For It To Be Re-tested They Are 14" Steel Wheels They Fitted The Back Fine But The Front Didnt Due To The Brake Pads Getting In The Way Any Suggestion???

you need the right size steelies, they are obviously too small or wrong offset

Isn't the car going to be even lower on the 14 steel wheels?????

The wheels cant be covering anything as the Testers should still see the drive shaft boots brake pipes track rod ends etc. If they cant see something then hard cheese to them as a tester is NOT allowed to remove anything.

many bodykits arent designed well enough to be suitable for road use imo. there is no mechanism to ensure a bodykit is safe and will not cause problems such as this. any fool can make and sell any bodykit for any car without the body kit passing any kind of safety or suitability standards.

I take it you never go over hump-back bridges or over potholes?

If the kit comes under the wheel then changing the wheels isn't going to stop it from rubbing when it's jacked up.
