    Hi all,

    just after a bit of advice regarding tyre sizes for my logo.

    the options standard are

    155 85 13
    175 65 14

    what would you recommend for 16" wheels??
    - - - Updated - - -
    the new wheels are 7" wide
    - - - Updated - - -
    going off what the Jazz use would 195 50 16 work the best ?
    they are the same as the logo on 14s

    although they are 6" wide,, so maybe 205 45 16 ??

    I would check clearance on inner wheel well if the 16 inch wheel won't touch at full lock mate.

    Use this website.. Have to know the Rim dia for accurate measurements. but just calculating with a dummy wheel width.. this is the closest I could get to the current rolling dia. 195 45 16
    Online Wheel and Tyre Fitment Calculator. Offset, Tyre Stretch and Speedo Error | Will They Fit

    Personally I went from 14 to 15 and if the car didn't look this good with the upgrade I would have gone back to 14s.. I will physically resist going up to 16 even if someone gave them to me for free as I think there is not enough suspension travel in poor Jazz to compensate for loss of sidewall flex at 45 profile tyres + added weight of larger wheels.

    should be a fair bit of a difference going from the 13s that's on :Smile:

    Haha that is for sure.
    Why not 14 or 15" with a bit of lowering springs. Plenty of those sizes around if you looking for OEM. 16" wheels of the Civic I had were considerably heavy and on a tiny 1.4 car with little biscuit wheels it will increase unsprung weight and lead to very poor ride.
