Anyone think narrower winter tyres in 215 60 R16 will fit?
My 06 wagon has eibach sport estate springs (from Europe). I dont think they are narrower, and I haven’t rolled the fenders
Think people roll with 225 50 16 in street summer tyres.
So I expect they will fit?
Any thoughts, experience please

Kind Regards

That's 2" taller than stock.
215/60-16 probably wont fit. Not 100% sure about the Wagons, but on my 06 ZX3 they just barely clear with all the modifications I've done. This includes Lifting the car and relocating the rear wheels back 1".

First thing to hit would be the tire against the front of the rear wheel well since they are not centered from factory
