It will depend on what tyre size you go for but it should be ok if you keep the wall size of the tyre around 45/40, but to be honest iam just guessing as i have no experience with this car but the arches on the megane are large enough? i think

Iam sure other members that have already done this will advise soon?

Cheers Don
