    Has anyone got any pics of 16x8 wheels on a ke70. I've been offered a set of these 16x8 steelies but I'm thinking 16" is too big. Been raping the net trying to find pics but no luck, can anyone send me a link or post a few pics up here so I can see if it will work or if I shouldn't bother..

    cheers

    If the 15" runs a 195/50
    And the 16 runs a 205/40 they are literally the same diameter, which is what actually matters.
    Get it low and a tight wheel/guard clearance and I reckon it would look great, a good neg offset would help to.

    Hmmm didn't think of this might just organise to try them on to see how it looks. What sort of price different would it be for a set of ssr fm 14x7.5 + 9 jj for 16x8 grizzy import steelies

    You specifically want those specs?
    What are the steelies worth you speak of?

    The rim/tyre combo is what will make or brake it..
    Run a 16 x 8 with a 195/60 and it will look stupid.
    You will need a 40 profile to pull it off

    Those ssr are mine with those specs, and I want to swap them for the steelies. The steelies have a 0 offset. And have a 205/55 on them..

    heres a link to the wheels not the same guy but they are the exact same

    15's are plenty big enough.

    16 with a 195/45/16 would be ok

    Yeah I know I can make them fit that's not the problem, weather the size will suit the look is another story... Just gonna try them and see how they go...

    On the other hand, can anyone help me with what the steelies are worth against ssr formula meshies. Details are a few posts above..
