Wrong size for the car they might fit bit you wont get full lock on steering and your rears will prob scrub the wheel arch.

depends on the shocks too, they have the little lip that flares out at the top to stop rocks getting into the bottom of the bearing. that stopped me fitting 17's with tall (65) rubber. lower profile i dont think would have made a massive difference...

its not a prob for everyone, but be wary of it.

I am currently fitting 20s to my vh running a 225/35/20 tyre. At the front I am going to run a koni adjustable shock with compressed springs + guard rolling and the strut platform is getting cut and re welded 3" higher to allow for clearance of the front tyres. And the rear will hopfully only need guard rolling and compressed springs!
