Stock Gt 16" Rim on wider tires?

Hey, im new here so sorry if i come across as a forum noob. Im just wondering whats the maximum width of tire could you get on the stock rims?

People might just say get new wheels but i have rota grids and theyre simply too heavy i believe, these stock enkei rims are fairly light, much lighter than my rotas so hoping these stock wheels can take some meaty tires!

Thanks in advance

16x6.5 +48 wheels. I wouldn't go bigger than a 225/50/16.

FYI, if you don't like how sunk in your wheels are, you could run bolt-on spacers to flush things up. 25mm would be the where I'd start. This sounds aggressive, but the wheel will have the same "poke" as a 16x7.5 +35. Which is not very aggressive.




like these.
