    I've not put them on yet, i'm changing wheels, brakes and suspension all at once, just want to get it all sorted with correct parts first, what brakes you running?

    Hey guys, Picked up a set of Brock B2 16" 7.5J wheels for the VR and was wondering what best size tyre to put on.
    Trial fitted the new wheels last night with the current 195/40/16 on them and I thought they looked terrible. Stretched and lost in the arch.

    I was thinking 205/40/16 or 215/40/16

    Was leaning more towards the 215 as tyre options available for the 215's are greater.

    Will have to use spacers also as the wheels foul the calipers currently.

    Any comments on fitment issues

    Thanks!!

    45 profile for 16" wheels will keep the rolling radius as close to standard, and keep your speedo correct. What are the offset of the wheels? That'll have an impact on the width if you need spacers

    Hi Seanl82, wheels have a offset of ET25.
    I was thinking 15mm Hubcentric spacers up front and 15 or 20mm rear.

    My only concern with the 45 profile over the 40 is the wheels looking too blooney.

    Whats you opinon on the tyre width 205/215

    Many thanks for your reply.

    Iím torn with getting some speedlines and getting them refurbished in a slightly darker silver metallic, or buying some new 17ís.

    The ones in question are 17 x 7.5 5x100 ET35. Presuming fit 205/40/17 tyres?

    Main thing is I donít want any arch mods. So if the larger wheels might rub Iíll stick to the good old originals.

    I've got BBS RX228s in that exact fitment. I'm lowered about 30mm on the Bilsteins but had coilies down about 40mm previously and had absolutely no issues with rubbing.

    Similar spec to most of the wide wheels people run, would look the same as the off the shelf stuff like borbet, schmidt etc with 9x16 et15 & et30. Front's wouldn't be as wide but outer lip would be same position.
