I'm looking at 2 different wheels for my alfetta gt. But I'm a little worried about fit or the right tires to get for them. Here are the 2 options.

Konig Hypergram, 15x7.5 et35 weight 11.6 lbs, will need wobble nuts
tires 245 60 15?

tires 205 50 16

out of both. What one would people advise and would those tire sizes work?

Thanks!

I wouldn't go wider than 205 on an Alfetta, I think 245 is going to steer like a truck and follow every groove in the road.

wheels

245-60 x 15 will not work. Way too tall and big. I run 225-50x 15 on 15 x7 Ronals.
Work great. Slight rub at full lock at front/rear of front wheel wells.
I have run this wheel/tire combination for over 20 years. No issues.

Thanks for the replies. Is heavy steering a product of heavy wheels, wide wheels, or a combo of both. I'm leaning to the 16x7 and a 205. That way I could always run a spacer to get it closer to the offset of 25 later if I wanted.
