      Only reason I could imagine them turning you down is because messing with the overall diameter throws off your speedometer accuracy, and their management doesn't allow liability for that (I once had Firestone refuse to simply remove and throw away used drag slicks that came on some OEM wheels I bought). Or maybe the tire rubbing on suspension components becomes an issue? If you want more sidewall (which is understandable, it's more comfortable), get smaller wheels if the car allows, so you can maintain the stock overall diameter. Anyway, a Fusion forum would be better help for you.

      On a side note, holy hell sedans have gotten big for that size tire to be stock!
