It is difficult to determine a maximum tyre width that can be fitted to your vehicle. Each car has specific drive trains, even when the dimension is identical.
To remain in 16'', you could fit:
215 75 R16
225 75 R16
235 70 R16
255 65 R16
We recommend fitting 235 maximum width, which corresponds to a tyre 30mm wider than originally fitted.
Be careful when installing and driving as the tyre may touch the wings, but also the wheel arches when turning.
rezulteo's advice: Ask your tyre seller or dealer for advice to prevent damaging your vehicle.
