Re: What did you do to your xb today??

16's definitely would look good, but remember that they will give you less of a sidewall height due to the lower aspect ratio (AR) available. Attached is a list of the four sizes recommended for the Gen1 xB. The stock 185/60R15 tire has the highest sidewall height. The 16's with their 55 AR and 50 AR do not equal the 60 AR on the stock tire. You can go to a higher AR, or to a wider tire, but then you get into possible issues such as rubbing, speedometer error, or MPG, since either of these options impact the overall height of the whole tire.

The tires sizes shown on the list will not create those issues. Check these considerations with a tire dealer before deciding on replacements. Good hunting!
