    I like the ssr type c but they are similar style to buddyclub p1 which are i think more readily available in better sizing.

    SSR: good and good size

    Mars: crap. And knock offs. And probably heavy. +42 is crap

    What brakes are you using?

    Cheers for that @unclepaulie
    Using fto twin pot front brakes
    What’s bad about the +42 offset? Just wondering?

    +42 sinks the wheel in towards the coil arm a lot. So much so that i think 7" wide with +42 would be touching the coilover, or the tyre will at the very least.

    My 17”s wheels are +42 and they are 7” wheels. They sit close to the coilarm with about 2cm or so clearance
    So the lower offset would be better? Like the +34?

    That offset is perfectly fine to run. You wont have issues with the brakes as 16 inch will clear 276mm calipers. +34 offset shouls have the wheel sitting pretty flush with the guard or have a little bit of poke. However nothing some camber cant fix.

    All good. Need a decent set of wheels that are 16”
    So the SSR with the +34 offset would clear the brakes?. dont mind about the slight poke. fenders have been rolled.

    I'd be surprised if the ssr's didn't clear. They're a very good quality brand.

    They look like a similar spoke design to my advan SA3's. You'd need HUGE brakes for them to not clear.

    Ah yes. I use the fto twin pots. Many people do run 16s with them. My old 15s didn’t clear so I got a set of 17s..
    As I daily the car I find the 17s awful plus I don’t like the look of rubber band tyres.
    I want to buy new wheels but issue is if they don’t fit.
    As people said most 16s fit depending on the design. Thanks for the help :)

    Pretty sure you can buy from Enkei directly, or at least used to be able to: http://enkei.com/find-a-dealer/

    Worst case just go through a wheelership. I think @Res went direct back in the day

    Chasing buddyclub p1's, not enkei rpf1 Donki. There's a few enkei dealers around, but can't find buddyclub. A few fakes around on ebay though.

    Never bought them new unfortunately so i cant help there. Noticed however mostly honda guys have them but double check offset. Seen 15x8 +32 in both 5 and 4 stud.
