Not too certain whether you can do it without scraping, but I just want to add that the ride will be VERY harsh, and your alloys will be quite prone to buckling (since there'll be hardly any rubber to absorb some of the impact from potholes)

Personally I'd settle for 17 inches.

Agreed. Largest size I would go for is 17"

Yeah +1 for all the above, the 16 inch have a low profile of 45 sidewalls, moving on to the 17's they go to a 40 profile, which is low on a 17, and as pointed out already, the ride can suffer. Moving to 18's will require a minimum of a 35 profile, which is effectively an elastic band, tyres would be expensive, and any pothole would be a potential wheel breaker :huh:
