    first of all, what is the widest tire i can fit on a 16x7 wheel without risking any problems?

    also, are there any cons when using wheel spacers?

    hmm, with a rim that small in width I dont think I would use anything bigger than a 245 wide tire.......and that could be too much :dunno: you dont want your sidewalls to bow out and look like crap not to mention compromise the life and performance of the tire

    yeah a 7" wheel... that tiny i would get different wheels first then worry about tires and no worries with spacers but if your running a 235 and using spacers its going to look dumb from behind

    I agree. Why spend money on tires for 16" wheels? Get some larger diameter ones and some decent tires. Spacers are a last resort for fitment problems.

    as long as you use hubcentric spacers you will be ok...get ones similar to eibachs and MMs.
