    yes, sounds like that should be ok, you might get some rubbing when pushing on though

    Hi, just to let any one know who was thinking of getting the calibre vintage wheels they won't fit over 288mm brakes, some spacers will be needed to stop spokes being ruined by the caliper.

    I have BBS RCs 16, 7.5j, ET35, 30mm drop. Current tyres are 195/45/16 but two are getting low so I want to replace all four.

    The stretch is a little much for my liking - I'd prefer to go to 205/45/16 or even 215/40/16. I am worried that the latter may give me too harsh a ride and be close to rubbing, but the former may still be too stretched.

    The car's a daily, so rubbing really isn't an option, and the ride needs to be as good as possible.

    Any thoughts on whether it will rub or not, and whether the ride will be nasty on the lower profile tyres? Any pics of 205/45 on 7.5j to give me an idea of how much they will stretch?

    205s will be fine no fitment issues, no stretch and no rubbing

    Cheers - I probably sound like a jessie worrying about such a small stretch compared to what some guys are running!

    It makes sense to check but 205s are the perfect size for those wheels, no stretch just a nice fit
