I couldn't agree more. Wider wheels and tyres might look good on a Minor but will make little or no difference to road behavior above decent tyres on standard rims particularly on a standard car. If you want a cheap, different look AND cheaper tyres you could try the various 13inch wheel choices from MG Midgets which are plentiful and inexpensive secondhand. I found that a slightly wider 13inch tyre had a very similar rolling radius to a standard 145x14 Minor tyre.
