The website says that they will fit according to their "alloy wheel selector" so if they don't you can point to this. As a matter of interest, what is the offset of the wheels?

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

What tyre size are you looking at having?

I fitted some wider 15 inch tyres that were 195/65 and the added profile depth meant they can catch the body of the car at full lock. In hindsight I should have used 195/60.

Hence with 16 inch wheels, I suspect you will need a low profile.

Do you think 195/45/16 would be a better tyre then lads

That would only make 4mm of difference over 195/65/15 - would also be a hard ride.

Have a play around here:-

It's tricky, as the 16inch wheel will add 12mm and the lower profile will reduce by 6mm...

If my experience is anything to go by, that might not fit.

Mine have caught the body a few times and the tyres were between 5 and 6mm tread. Your new treads will have the full 8mm on them.
