    Upsizing from 15 inch alloys to 17 inch how do I do so without messing up the speedo? and if I need to, who can calibrate it to the new wheels?

    Hi Graeme. As long as you are fitting the right tyres with your larger wheels, it shouldn’t affect your speedo. As you go up in wheel size, you need to come down in tyre profile (sidewall height). The overall rolling height/circumference of the wheel and tyre combined shouldn’t change.

    Have a read of our article on alloy wheels: http://www.thecarexpert.co.uk/alloy-wheels/
