I have the 5 spoke 16" wheels with 195/55 goodyear NCT5 runflats on.

I was very impressed by the Eagle F1 DS G2 on my previous car and with P-Zeros on other cars i have driven.

Do either of these tyres come in a size to fit the 16" 5 spokes and what feedback does anyone have from them?

(i think the runflats are too hard and i'm not really startled by their wet performance)

In 205-50 x 16s you will. Both tires.
Slightly smaller diameter.
It's the size I run for auto-x, Kumhos though.

I have the F1's on the front, same size as the standard 16's except they are a bit wider, same as the standard 17's. Find them very good, got them for a very good price on blackcircles.com think they are the DS G3. I will check the size next time I go out to the car.

thanks guys

i was really impressed with my DS G2s i had before so think i'll go for G3s this time.

i haven't found P-zeros to fit the 16s. i was impressed by them on our X-type jag esp in the wet. i do think they are quite noisy though, probably a trade off for their wet weather performance (wide treadblocks)

even if i could find pirellis to fit my wheels, i guess they'd be more expensive. so think it's F1s for me!
