ideal sizes for 16s would be a 16 x 7 rim (fronts) with 215/45/16 or 205/45/16 and a 16 x 8 rim with 225/45/16 in the rears..u can try to fit 235s or 245s or 255s in the rears but depending on ur suspension setup u will have rubbing issues and will have to roll the fenders....i have 245/45/16s on an 8" wide rim and it rubs (on h&r springs and trust adj. shocks)....

on a side note....spend a few hours and browse thru all the old posts....most of the answers ur looking for u will be able to find..welcome to TN and enjoy driving and owning an mr2.....:D

i'm running 205/45/16 up front....i wanted to get 215s up front but they were out of stock for that size and i didn't want to wait...my car is pretty low and even with my suspension as stiff as it is....the rears rub under hard bumps while drive....i'm gonna have to roll the fenders....i had 225/45/16s in the rears before and never had any rubbing issues.....if u go to the main page on www.toyotanation.com look in the gallery section under members rides and u'll see some more pics of my car with the 245s on the rears.....i really should have went with a 40 series tire though...

^ I can let you know on Saturday/Sunday. I should have mine in by then. Except mine will be a little wider in the back.

If you look at me Web site, that is the set up I have on both cars.
... the photos of Hyde drag racing are all on 16's though.

I prefer the look.
17s on the front of the MR2 look to big IMO.
It makes thefront of the car look taller than it is.

I am quite pleased with my handling.

Blaskdhlhghg..... they were too wide. But they looked bad ass... they rubbed just a little since they were so wide. They looked SOOOO nice on it though. No wheel gap on the 17's... and a little bit on the 16's.
