All,

I might get some wheels that are 16x7". Would my OEM tires from my GQ - just the stock Pirelli Cinturato in 195/45-16 work on these wheels? From what I understand, my GQ wheels are 16x6.5" and I have no clue if this would be a problem or not.

I'd rather sell my wheels and tires as a set, and buy new tires that I prefer, but if I can't sell the tires with the wheels, I'd like to know if I can still use them.

Thanks guys!

It would be doable but you'd be running stretched tires. Not by much but TBH, the stock tires aren't that great. You're better off selling the set and picking up a set of 205/45/16 tires (wider, pun intended, selection).

Thanks! Ideally, that is what I want. Just not sure if I can sell the set, we'll see!

It would be fine. Barely stretched.
