Wider Tyres (16" Rims)

I'll admit i'm just vain by asking this but can you fit 225/50/ZR16 tyres to the 6.5x16" standard rims?

I see no reason why not going by the tyre sizes the rim width can take.

Are there any reasons why this would be a bad idea? I would imagine grip would be better but perhaps handling would be worse?

Also, while im on the subject of tyres and wheels, can anyone say why 17" rims were never listed as an option on the spider from '98 but were on the coupe? Were 17's an option on P3 spiders?

To err is human, but you need an Alfa to really screw things up!

The road to heaven is paved with old Alfa's.
