Bought these used in SC last year but never got around to fitting them.
Fairly rare in 8" width as most 4x100 16s are 7".

16x8
4x100
ET38
Center bore ~72mm (will verify)

BFG g-Force Sport Comp 2 (summers) 205/45 R16 stamped 3018 with plenty of tread left.

Slight curb rash on one of the wheels but should be easily fixed as it's not deep.
No center caps, TPMS sensors or hardware included.

Nowhere really but I wanted to run 225/45 summers and keep my stock no seasons for the colder months.
There are however hardly any suitable 16” tars sold here, unless you wanna go full :stig: with TW200 Proxes R1R or Direzza ZIII, so figured I’ll try to find a set of 17s instead.

Now Mini may end up going too if things don’t start to pick up again soon..

Yeah... big reason why I didn’t go with 16s on the R53, as much as I wanted to.

Toyo Proxes R1R tires are :poop: and there’s not much else.

Interesting re: the Toyos.
Personal experience?

Also having done some googling and IG’ing, I think I prefer the look of 17s on R53 & R56 too.
Yours is a good example of that.

They’re just old hat and tire technology has come a long way since they were last developed.

I put Toyo tires on my C5 and they were 100% meh. Would not recommend, and agreed it's mostly due to old technology. I believe the tires I put on were engineered in the early 00's.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.
