      Why would you want to do that? Different tyre size is usually accompanied by different rim size, so overall wheel size is the same (within a couple of %).

      I don't know... I would be surprised if not.. but you need to check out the load bearing. I'm fairly sure that only the 18" wheels are rated for V10.
