Not all that fake...Try driving in Germany on tyres that are not of a "zugelassen" size. It is even entered on the registration certificate.
In fact, if the Polizei are in a nasty mood, they'll even pull foreign cars off the road for non-compliance.

FAKE NEWS about tyres being illegal if you change dimension. You can have any dimension you want as long as the tyres stays inside the fender lines!
Even if it doesent, you wont get into ant problems... you just wont pass the MOT...


But it might invalidate your insurance and so make driving in the UK (at least) illegal. :o

I wonder who the member is behind that false claim of fake news? It cannot be that he is driven in a PHEV. Normally it is a black limousine. :mrgreen: :lol:

If you've watched those US automobile renovation programes on TV, it would seem that hugely different size wheels that protrude outside the bodywork, showering following cars with stones and spray, are not illegal. They are in the UK. Tyres with incorrect speed rating are probably illegal everywhere. Many car's ABS systems will "complain" if the tyre diameter is not close to original spec. I've never heard of legal problems in the UK with replacement tyres and wheels with a different aspect ratio to spec, so long as they match original diameter and don't protrude outside the bodywork.

Looks like common sense prevails.
