Hey Guys
Tonight i picked up a set of 16x6.5's. I really really like them. What are my options for tires? 205/55/16's or rather should i go with 205/50/16's or 195/55/16? I think the 195/55/16 may be too small but its good to get input from everyone.
Also I'd like to run a spacer to get the wheels out a little bit, you know make them look wider.. what have you guys done on your cabs:
20mm spacers?
30mm spacers?
Up to how big of a spacer is ok?
Thank you for all the help
(btw i looked through the Faqs they weren't really good at explainging which tires are better for what... and they didn't talk about spacers... and how large of a spacer you can go with)

Re: Please help me with the wheels!!!! (35i 2000)

What car is it for?
Because all the combos you listed there are too big for a mk1 cabbie.
Your speedo reading will be much too low and you will have problems running them, especially if you install spacers.
205/40-16 or better still, 195/45-16 will be closer to the stock size and cause less if any problems.
In addition, a big wheel will affect your acceleration negatively.
