I guess bit of a strange one this but,i would like to see the side angle photo of turinis alloys with 205/45/16 or maybe 195 please,i would like to see what make of tyres fit the wheel the best.As i have rainsport3's on 205 and they dont fit the wheel like i would like them to fit.they look a bit balloon like.
I have found a few photos for examples.

I find some tyres seem wider than others eg r888s in 195 seem more like 205, whereas p zero Nero in 205 seem more like 195. Could be something to do with sidewall thickness and whether they have rim protection or not.

Just my 10p worth.

Just remember that, sure, you can go smaller section on your tyres, and it'll be cheaper too.
You just lose an inch of footprint on each axle. May not be the end of the world, depends on how much you like to give your Clio a kicking around the bends :)

Crap picture and wrong car but the 'squarer' 225 section fronts fill the arches better and give it a much better look than the 215 section rears with a bit of stretch and more arch gap.

Both are 45 profile.

I dont think it looks bad,but then its not on turinis.
It was just an example of the sort of side tyre photo i wanted to see,so could see how the tyres fit.

Looks like this to me,don`t care it`s a turinis or a steely.Tyre is too small for the rim.

Fair enough mate @flebay

I just read an old Autocar article about the 172 Cup Vs Mini Cooper and gives you all the specs of each car and the Turinis are only 6.5 x 16inch and 195/45/16 as standard.I would of thought they would of been 7inch wide.
