    whats the weight of them chap, as for going the route your going mate I would be more concerned on the weight and caliper clearance. compomotives should clear nicely in a 16 leaving room for 308's unless your going bigger brakes

    I said Volks but its your own choice at the end of the day.

    The Rota's would look tiny because of their design and the Rays look quite cheap.

    I really like the first two wheels, but tbh, I don't think any of them will look good in 16s. If you want 16" alloys, you are saying, you don't want styling, you want function - therefore, at this size, IMHO only motorsport type wheels work. If you want styling, this wheels would looks stunning in 18".
