The 17" z rated tires on my 03 Mach 1 are around $200 each.  How much were those 20" tires?  If you don't have 17" rims, you are looking at around $800-$1000 for those too.  I don't see any physical reason why 17" wheels wouldn't fit if it has 20" wheels on it now and doesn't rub.  Send a picture of it with the 20" tires on it.  I bet it looks weird.

I agree with you that 17' should fit. It seems to me that the TOTAL diameter of wheel plus tire would be the same with 17's or 20's. Compared to a 20 in. with tires, the 17" tire would have a wider sidewall to compensate for the difference in the 20"wheel to be the same TOTAL diameter. This seems logical. I can get 17" wheels with h rated tires for about 900.00. The wheels and tires on the car now i can get probably 1500 or more for. I just need to take the step!!!! ???

If you hit the reply button, you will see an "additional options" at the bottom.  Make sure you have a picture of your car on your digital camera or an online host, and post it right here.  See how easy it is?
