It can be mounted on the steel rims....but the tire is technically too wide for the rim...but it will work....I'm considering buying a wider tire for my IQ. 205/55/16, but don't want to upgrade my rims. Will a tire this size fit well on my current rims? Am considering the Continental Extreme DWS or the Mastercraft Strategy. Any opinions? Thanks much.
Good morning,I made my decision and went for it, finally. I purchased the Mastercraft Strategy 205/55/16 and packaged them with American Racing 95 Estrella 16" alloy wheels. I went with Les Schwab due to being in rural Montana, with some bad roads and also wanted the guarantees and service. I am VERY PLEASED with the result!! The wheels look so cool on my IQ and I love the way the wider tires look. The feel of the ride is much softer; less stiff and jarring; much more forgiving than the stock tires. It was like I got new shocks on the car. I got some credit for my stock tires and they gave me a couple other discounts…so was out of there at $840. Which I felt wasn't bad, considering. It already feels well worth the money. I am enjoying my IQ even more now. My hubby jumped into the car the other day and said "I just love this little car." Me too. Thanks for all the advice and help. I will post pics when I can wash the car, too cold right now!!
