I plan to go for the JCW soon and also intend to swap to 16" wheels.

My concern is that the standard Dunlop 195/55 RF tyres will not have enough traction, is there anyone running these on a JCW that can comment?

I am considering a 205/50 non runflat, but have concerns about losing runflat conveience and carrying around a compressor / tyre weld :eek:

Oh what to do! :confused:

Before opting for 16" wheels I'd do some research on what size run-flats are available and also their (not-so-cheap) prices. It all depends on whether you want, summer-performance, all seasons or dedicated winter tyres. I think there is a VERY limited selection for 16" wheels (and 17" for that matter). Someone like Alex at Tire Rack could give you some expert advice.
