205/40/16 would be too short and I can put a 205 on a 14" rim.
215/40/16 would be great, find me some good 215/40/16 tires.
225/40/16 would be too tall, find me a good 225/40/16 tire.

you can go with a:

205/45/16
215/45/16
215/40/16
225/35/16
245/35/16


The only "good" tire in those sizes is the Kuhmo XS in a 215/45/16, which I have.

The ONLY 245/35/16 is the Toyo T1R...it's overpriced, it's not a good tire, and they aren't even in stock.

The only good 215/40/16s are the fk-452s and the S.Drives, overpriced and not the greatest tire, you aren't going to win competitions with them at least.


I think the only race tire you can find in any of the above is the 215/40/16 Kuhmo v710 at $230 a pop.


No RS3s, 615Rs, NT01s.



plus these short sidewalls create a shitty harsh ride.

My bad Dave, for some reason I read your post as "225"/45/16 and there aren't many options for 225s on 16" rims.
