Did you actually determine that the wider wheels make the look of the 409 change? I imagine Bristol would have changed the 16" wheel to a 15" and made it slightly, but not noticeably wider with some of the increase going inward provided it did not cause the tyre to rub. It would be worthwhile asking Bristol before making your decision, as you then know you have a factory certified wheel which can have some benefit in the event of failure.
