Which looks better

  renaultsport 182
what size rim will my MK2 ph2 1.2 16v take im gonna buy superturismos but i seem to be leaning more toward 16". the car is not lowered and is not gonna be lowered. so what size would look better and what size tyre. has anyone got pics:D :D :D
  Dynamique S 138
16" 195/45/16 -35mm


17" 205/40/17 -35mm



both OZ Superleggeras
  Monaco Blue Mk2
£80 is all it costs to lower 40mm on good springs. Geometry will be fine. You should get it tracked after lowering it but I put my 40mm springs on about 3 months ago now and have still not had it tracked! :quiet:
It's fine though, tracking seems fine and it handles great so I'm in no rush. IMO if you don't lower it, it will look like a 4x4 and if you put it on 16's without lowering...a monster truck! lol. So if you're adamant you wont be lowering then 15's. 15's will also help with handling. Up to you though at the end of the day mate.

lowering is a must when increasing the size of the alloys on the car.

imho all cars should be lowered.
  Pink & Blue 182, JDM DC2
OZ Superleggeras and lower it. Any decent garage can adjust the tracking and geometry for a small amount of money -£50.
  Fiesta Zetec S TDCi
This is mine on 16s without lowering - it looks pants :(


This is it now sitting nicely on coilovers :)


You can't put bigger wheels on without lowering mate, it really does look poo.
