    Hi... I am looking to get new wheels for my 2007 Copen. Can anyone give me the original wheel sizes and also what's the maximum wheel size I could put on?

    Thank you Salieri. And what is the maximum width of a 15 inch wheel? Is 6.5 x 15 ok?

    Depends on what your local car roadworthyness testing facility is willing to accept :D
    You can put almost any kind of tire on there, but you might have to invest in wheel spacers, broader wheel arches, spring rate reducers (if that is the correct term?) etc.
    I think I have seen 6.5x15, but I know there is a document somewhere here that shows every possible combination and the work you have to put in in order to get through MOT/TÜV

    It's MOT not TUV Salieri, our tests don't care about approvals, you can literally just slap anything that fits on and if it drives to the MOT station without them falling off, they're fine.

    Dezent Ti 5jx15, 4x100pcd, 45 offset on Uniroyal Rainsport 3 195/45/R15 with kerbing rib are what I switched to, I've attached a pdf of wheel sizes used by our German friends but they're a lot more restricted than we are.
    Mine needed no work doing, no rubbing and handling is fine.
