Question Max tire size on Fuch Rims

Does anybody know what the maximum tire size I can utilize on my Fuchs rims? I believe the rim size is 16 x 7 and 16 x 8 (1987 Carrera).

You might go look at the specs on the Tire Rack website ( to see what the largest recommended sizes are for your Fuchs. Pick either the tires you have on it today or those that you might put on it. If you're looking at something like Toyo's that Tire Rack doesn't sell, go to the Toyo website at <a href="" target="_blank"></a>

Well, it would be fine to use 225/50-16 and 245/45-16 if you don't have rubbing issues. Front fender clearance can be tight when hitting big bumps at low speeds with wheels turned.
