Hi Gema,
Well done on the insurance!!
No that is not true, 17"s will fit. You should have 16" wheels on a 2002 172 with 195/45/16 tyres.
(If you do happen to have 15" wheels they will have 195/50/15 tyres on them)
The wheels we can supply are the same width as the originals (7" wide)... But they have a lower profile tyre on (205/40/17) to compensate for the extra size of the wheel so the rolling circumference of the wheel remains (almost) the same.

So if you think about the overall dimensions of the tyre it is almost identical to the original wheel so will fit in the standard original wheelarch.

So there you have it....
Clear as mud!!!!
