Are all 16" rims able to fit any of the first numbers? According to that table, If I was to go with a tire that is 185-45-r16 or 195-40-r16 or 205-40-r16 I'd be ok. The rims I have right now have 205-45-r16 on them, and I need to know if any of those sizes will still fit the rim.
If you're talking about the link I sent, it doesn't account for rim width. It's really best to use if you're starting with your stock size tires and want to know what fits and keeps you within a specific speedometer error range (in other words, staying as close to stock diameter as possible).
What car do you have, and what's the stock size tire?
NX's came with 195/55/14's stock. So plug that into the calculator, set the max size to 16" 225mm and 2mph error, and you'll get a bunch of results. Not all of the results are actual sizes that are made though.
A 205/40/16 is the closest match in overall diameter, and there are allot of tires available in that size. You don't want a 185 or 195, it's just too narrow for a 16", and there are only a few made.
As far as what will fit on a 7" rim, a 205 will be fine.
Ok, so I guess going from 40 to a 42 isn't a big deal from what i've been reading. But I'm a little wary on going to 16" rims which are 1" thicker, bolting them up and getting rubbing. I have stock shocks, so would I need a spacer, or anything of that sort to prevent rubbing?
