If it looks stock, I doubt they'd notice! Obviously if you have 20" chrome wheels they are likely to notice and check the laws :)

Dad's got EA 14 inch rims on his EF wagon with no issues.

He bought new tyres then sent the EA to the dump a month later so put them on the EF.

If you follow the letter of the law they arent allowed but no-one has asked him about them in the last few years.
