Help with rims/tyres

I was looking to buy some 16x7 inch OZ Racing F1 cup rims and fitting 215/40 tyres onto the new rims. I have a few questions that I would like answered before I pay up.

Will these wider tyres fit into the arches without any scrapping at full steering lock?

Will I still be able to lower my car by around 2 to 2.5inches?

Will the tyres stick out from the side of the car?

will these be lighter than stock rims?

Re: Help with rims/tyres

considering you have a fiesta, you can still lower it, it wont rub, wheels shouldnt stick out, dont know how heavy they are.


but, if you get a bodykit put on you might want to go 17/18" as i have 16" and am getting my kit put on this weekend. but cos the wheels are quite small with a 35mm drop the kit is pretty low to the ground
