ok so I know this has probably been covered a millions times but I want to make it a million and one :)

I am thinking of getting a set of 16x7 et40 wheels and wondered if 215/45/16 tyres would fit on an Ek9 with standard suspension without any rubbing.

Most of the threads I have found suggest it should be alright but I don’t know what suspension set up these guys where running and maybe it was ok for them if they where running a much firmer suspension?

What’s your thoughts?

I would've thought with standard suspension that'd be fine, since its not low low. I'm on 205/45/16 but I'm lowered to tucking so it catches, if it was raised it'd be fine though

Thanks mate.

That’s what I thought as the diameter of the wheel will only be about 4mm more and circumference about 13mm so shouldn’t make much difference but wanted to check if anyone else was running standard suspension with these size of wheels/tyres.
