Alloy & Tyre size?????????

I have a 98 145 1.8Ts, which i'm thinking of changing the wheels on. What i would like to know is, what size tyres should i be looking at for 15" & 16" alloys?

I have a really stupid (but serious) problem with my car. Although I have the original 15''alloys fitted with the recommended size of tyres 195-55-15 I use Eibach springs when I drive in a rough road the rear wings ''shave'' the external side of the tires. The "shave" isn't bad and in NO case is dangerous but I think that this souldn't happened, otherwise how can I put 205/45/16" as you recommend!!!
Are the wings wide enough to "accommodate" the 205/45/16" tires??

Hi Carlo
Alfa did a 16" dealer fit option, with, I think, 205/45/16 tyres for the 145.

Hi Giannis,
check if you have spacers on the back ...
there is very little space in the TI's rear arches.

Just had a feel round my back arches (ooeeerrrr!), & there's not a lot of room there. Probably only 2 fingers width between the tyre and inner arch wall. There's no Alfa dealer near me to check with though. Has any1 else got 16's on with no mods??
