I am using 16" Rim with 205/45/16. It is ok for me, as you will feel more bumpy.

My 16 inch work emotion CR is matched with koni absorber and Eibach spring. The rim is wrap with yokohama es 100 made in japan. very good grip and better handling. cheers.

The tyre size i'm using is 105/45/16. It did not touch the fender while i corner. I adjusted the absorber to be slightly harder than normal.
