We believed that the Rolling Circumferential Difference were precisely computed (lesser than 0.10% as possible). Else, I guess you've already accepted the fact that the Trip Meter, Odometer and Speedometer Readings will not be anymore true.

Extra Mass = Extra Weight = Added Tire Cost = Degraded Acceleration = Added Fuel Consumption.

ah really sorry no idea just a noob. got the car for a year only but I'm aware on accelaration and fuel consumption issues. Sir is it difficult riding in 17s like bengkong or prone to flat tire problems?

There are lots of Online Tire Calculator that you can use so you may be able to peg the difference and thus serves as your mutiplier.  ;)

Care to share your Tire's specs in  www ssR17 (where www = Width and ss=height of sidewall)?

Ruining a Casted Rim are dependent on the speed hitting and rolling over a sharp bump. Even at 55R15 tires, the Rims won't stand a chance at speed of ~90kph for a 4in block of wood.

Punctures are subjective and there is nothing to expect from our roads. Best way to mitigate it are the following:
- simply follow a car in a safe distance (so they'll harvest the nail first)  ;D
- avoid any broken glasses
- stay away from shops that does furnitures (i hate those nails)
- stay away from metal fabricator shops (you wont like metal screws either)
- clean and free the tires of embedded pebbles and other things at least once every 2 months. Quite a luck to find a nail or 2 that is half-way thru. This provides a chance to clean the inner sidewalls that are normally being ignored.

But as long the car stands majestic, to hell with these problems.
