      Hi Roy. I’m not sure how a car built in 2017 would have tyres built in 2015. Unless the car was actually built in 2015 but not registered until 2017, which happens more often than you’d think.

      If the tyres are the correct original fitment for the vehicle, the dealer is not going to change them for you.
