Hello,

Although possible but this will be a costly exercise
> You have to replace in 17 Inch alloys with new 16 Inch Alloys. Even if you sell in after-market may get in less than 50% of actual cost of same.
> Additional is Tyre replacement cost too

Having said same, are you experiencing any issue, although Ford owners have reported issues earlier but basis available info some kind of tune up done on Ecosport stock in 2019 and thats the reason that they have introduced in Thunder Edition with 17 Inch wheels too

If in case you still feel to downsize - can check out for 16 Inch Wheels with tyre size as R16 205/60 as what seen in existing Ecosport Version.
