Rial Mesh 16" 7J (year of manufacture '84~'86) with Cooper Zeon RS3-G1 225/50 R16 all the way around. No spacers or rings.

Those do look great.

Do you think that 225/55/16 tires would work? The 55 aspect ratio adds 12.75 mm or 0.44 inches to the sidewall.

Thanks,
David

I don't think you would have any clearance issues but I'd expect the speedometer to read ~3.2% slower per the calculation here: https://tiresize.com/comparison/
