Are there any issues with this or is it a straightforward exercise? I see there are a couple of types of 16 Aero wheels one called the Super Aero. I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who's been through the process.

Aero (flat), Super Aero (curved in spokes) and cross spokes available in 6.5J*16 4*108 fitment

Fit all C900's from 1988 model year

Just be careful with tyre size. C900 spec was 195/50*16 but peeple have tried 205/50*16 and 205/45*16 with varying success.

Rear arch space is an issue

My old T16S with Super-Aeros.

Tyres were 205/45's and there were no clearance issues at all (except for a quick rub from the nearside front under heavy load over the bump around Canal corner at Aintree Circuit!!)

Many thanks for the replys! Looking for a set of the flat Aero rather than super aero but annoying how expensive these rims are nowadays

Yeah mine is 195/50 and is the flatter Carlsson wheels, for me the Supers are way too chunky and too big for the car - my opinion mind!!

I got some new T16s springs from BillJ as mine were well sagged and some new shock absorbers too and have not once had any rubbing of any kind, the only thing that catches is the snowflaps underneath on sleeping policemen with a full tank of petrol :)
