    MOT Failure? (Wheels)

    Would my G fail it's MOT for having 1 smaller wheel on than the rest? i.e. 1 x 16" and 3 x 17"?

    I'm not sure my wheel is going to be ready in time for the MOT is all.

    the wheels have to be the same for the axis.

    so u need 2 x 16" wheels to get through where the wheel is missing, i.e. if its on the back, u need to put another 16 opposite it, and keep the fronts the same.

    this is what i was told anyways.

    Mine has been through before on a spare 15 with 17's all round, i thought it just had to be the sime diameter as the rest! Suppose it may depend how strict the asseser wants to be!
