B-Class wheels
I want to buy a set of steel rims and winter tyres for my 10-plate Mercedes-Benz B180 CDI auto.

I would like to fit a smaller rim with a narrower tyre of higher profile. There seems to be a problem with the size of rim needed to fit over the brake discs.

Consult www.rarerims.co.uk Yes there will be a minimum size you can go down to that will still fit around the brake discs and calipers. Probably 16".
