you dont need to stretch a 16x7. On top of that I don't even think they make a lower profile 16in tire smaller than 195. You have to go with like a 60 or 70 series if you go lower than 195. People Stretch tires to fit rims in the wheel wells that don't really fit with the correct tire size. 16x7 fits with plenty of room to spare.

You can try 175/60/16 if you insist on some stretch on 7" wheel. There are several brands of tires in this size. I know Federal makes one, I think that brand usuallly stretch pretty well, but i'm no expert, just what i've seen in the past.

I know they dont need to be stretched just checking because iv seen someone with 165/45/16 tyres on the wheels and they look pretty sick. Also my wheels have a chrome lip so i was thinking to stretch it so that it stands out more.
Thanks for your info people was just a thought, dont think im going ahead with stretching tyres yet

You are correct, they do have that size in Europe, but I don't see it available in the US. I didn't see you were from the UK.
