anyone running 16x8 ET25
 
So i really wanna get a set of 3SDM 0.05 and they only come in 16x8 et25 and 16x9 et20 (which i dont think the 16x9 will fit at all) does anyone know if they will fit? would the 16x9s fit? if they do i would go staggered

Are you willing to run the necessary tire sizes? If so, the 9s would fit. The 8s would as well.

I think there are a few minis running those wheels already so you should be able to find photos.

That will be an exceptionally short tire. I'd aim for 205/40/16 if you WANT to go with a short diameter....205/45/16 if you want to go with a more standard height.

Well I found a good deal on some used bbs rims so I decided to go with some 17x8.5 et30 I'm thinking to run a 205/40/17 or a 205/45/17 so I don't have any rubbing issues.

205/40/17 is what you want.

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I wanna purchase wheels in the same size as OP, 16x8 +26. My only question is how much stretch will I get if I use 195/55/16? The setup on my last car was 215/45/17 on a 17x9, which was the perfect amount of stretch for me. Should I expect something similar or will it be even more stretched?
