Ford Falcon: Upgrading to bigger wheels
The only thing you should be concerned about is the affect it might have on the speedo readings. Check the overall diameter of the 16-inch wheels and tyres and compare them to the diameter of the 25-inch wheel and tyre combination. If they're close to the same I don't believe you would have any trouble fitting them to the 2000 AU.
