I'm running both 215-45-16s and 205-45-16s.

the 40 profile is too short.
Why do you say that? Comfort standpoint?

Oh, and maybe MT can help me decide: XXR 002 or 513s? Both in black with polished lip. White NA with black stripes.

You deserve this :buffon:

You can easily fit 215/40 on 16s, is about the stock wheel diameter.

You deserve the :buffon:. I'm talking about the fenders.

EDIT: With low offset wheels, I should add.

i guess it's all close enough.

stock = 180-60-14 = 22.7" diamater
205/45/16 = 23.3" diameter
205/40/16 = 22.5" diameter
215/40/16 = 22.8" diameter
215/45/06 = 23.6" diameter
