    As above. 16s may be a bit too small. Get 17s.

    If you have 308mm then 16 inch will fit as this is the size spare you get on the gsi. Good luck trying to find a pair of steel 16 inch 5 stud wheels!!! it took me 6 months to find one. Ebay, internet, local scrappers!! nothing. They are like gold dust. Best bet is look for a pair of 16 inch alloys. The size you need to run with 17Inch rears is 205/50/16. hope this helps.....
    At the end of the day, it gets dark!!!!!
