There is a section "Match your Tyres to your Wheels" might be worth a look.

check Mr Funks 'The Bandit' or my own 'Scala' project threads - they're about the nearest size wise to your plans.

i run 195/40- 16 on my 7 x 16's on fairly low coilies - minimal rubbing on nsf at roundabouts.

rear arches will need work i'd suggest.

Thanks for the replies fellas,
GTXTRA how much did you lower Scala on coiles? Also are they 7inch rims all round & what et are they?

(Like the look of the Scala by the way) Cheers Steve.

cheers - they're 8 x 16 on the rear with 205/40 - 16 rubber.

i'd 'guess' she is about 50mm lower on the front, slightly higher on the back, rear arches rolled/sealed.

Right guys,im desperate to order these new rims but still not sure what offset to order.
My options are front 7.5x16 et20 or 7.5x16 et35 and rear 9x16 et15 or 9x16 et25 or 9x16 et30.
Is anybody running 9"s rear & 7.5"s front if so what et are yours?

PS my suspension & brakes are standard.


Cheers Steve. :help:

I am but can't for the life of me remember what the offset is. I've just got in and I'm freezing but I'll be out in the yard again tomorrow if you can wait?

Sorry I never got back to you, been a bit busy. Looked at the wheels but can't see the info, will have another look in the morning when I don't feel quite so arse.
Got a feeling theyre something odd like et10 or 15
