I'm no expert on this.. but if I recall correctly, you can go wider, but it will affect your turn in and slow down steering. On the other hand, I've also heard that many people do race on wider tires. Always used stock sizes myself.
yeah that'll be fine. What kinda rubber did you get? I shoulda told you before hand that i did a bit of research on the types of 16" tires that are used by some racers who haven't gone thorugh w/ the 17" conversion.
Cool... like I said I did alot of reading on the 16" tires and from what I read, that's one of the tires that i would have recommended to my teammates if he didn't decide to go w/ the 17" swap like I told him to Good luck w/ it, let us know how it works out.
