Wider wheels on 1690 ?

I am thinking of putting some wider tyres on my 1690 t . It's on the standard tyres at the moment 16.9 , 38 and 14.9 , 24 . Will it nip it up by putting 20.8 , 38 on the back ? How do I work out tyre ratios ?

Any help would be great[/quote]

How do I get my 1690 hand throttle tighter ?

The hand throttle on my 1690 turbo will only sit at 1800 revs. Is there an easy way to get it stiffer so it holds its revs without me having to hold the lever lol.

I want to put her on the dyno but I cant do that unless I am sat in the cab lol
