dude...

go for 195/45/16 - pointless going for the oversize 205's cheaper too...

mytre -
£36.70 for some unknown make - Sunny

£42.70 - Nankang
£45.90 - Federal


I've had no problems with the Nankangs whatsoever... would recomend them.. but the 195's will fit your rims... as there 16x7 ?

if your no bigger than 7" wide then 195 will be fine... added with the 45 profile they will look pretty spot on....

no stretch but no balloons... just a perfect fitting tyre

Nankangs are cheap for a reason, they are S**t.

You get what you pay for with tyres.

I've had nankangs for 7,000 miles so far with the caddy with no issues with performance grip or anything else.. Had them on the mini too with no problems and that was pushing some serious power...

I'd stick with the stock size mate. It'll look super gay with small tyres, especially with no lowerage.

I'd go Hot Lane, If you go Camskill you'll still need to find a willing fitter. Hot Lane did me 2 Uniroyal Rain Sports for £60 each all in. Good tyres, stick like S**t to a blanket in this weather, if a little unfashionable

By the way, I'm sure they're 205/55 R16's as standard, not 205/50...hence why you're struggling

Falkens are ****. Last 5 minutes.

They should be 55's, those are the correct size.
