Default Winter rims

Will 16 inch steel rims fit over the brakes on the SLE and SSEi ? I would like to go to a taller more narrow tire fot the winter.

Thanks

Hi Bill, was actually wondering about Jim'* (Gumball) wheels, are these the ones you are referring to or I am open to others if they are not going to bankrupt me. Want to use the factory 17'* for winter next year and get new rims and rubber soon

Jim runs his original 20 spokes in a 17in rim size.

There'* a guy in NY selling a set of 20 spokes with snow tires on them. I believe he recently bumped his for sale thread. I forget his forum name..but Kyle is his name.
