Those BBS are very small on the inside, so I'm surprised it works, but take
Peter's word for it.  I used to go the other way aka always ran C4 or better
rims on my Type 44...  I really can't identify with the 15" vs. 16" thing
making that much snow difference which is why I always opted for 16" minimum
for snows, but if you say so who am I to argue...

Small cosmetic issue - they are of course hard to keep clean with the mesh,
so aren't good for salt/sand season... but they do actually look pretty good
in a 'vintage BBS' way when they are at their best... Of course you'll be
subject to plenty of "RANCHO" comments from ricer-wannabee audi types but
screw them if you're happy...
