Downsizing and loving it!
I bought my TS and within a week had the 17" Zender Milanos off the 164 and on the GTV with the guidline 225x45 tyres.
Now after a year I've gone back to the standard 16" rims on the standard 205x50 rubber and just love it!!!
The car has livened up a treat and is much more light footed. Steering is more precise and not so heavy and all in all, a real treat to drive. It has always been fun to drive but it has transformed into a much more nimble machine albeit with a slight loss of grip on the corners.
So if anyone is considering moving up to 17" wheels on your TS, think hard if it is what you really want to do or at least take care with tyre sizes as I'm guessing 225 is too much for a TS and perhaps 215 would be better.
