ditto. What tires are you running in those sizes?I really like the feel of 205s up front and 225s in the rear. Maybe a little heavy and a tad bit of overkill, but I've ran it this way for years now.
Too bad they don't come in 15" - I don't really see a good rear tire size either.Just make sure that you buy Continental ExtremeContact DW tires unless you need all season capabilities (if you do get the DWS version). It is a max performance tire that is very economical, has dry ratings that make most extreme performance tires jealous, can handle the wet very well also, and best of all has a 340 treadwear rating. Don't take my word for it though, check out the survey results on Tirerack.com.
That is true on the 15's, but the OP only mentioned 16's. If it is for a staggered 15/16 set up I highly recommend the Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec (better in the dry, not quite as good in the wet, only a 200 treadwear rating).ditto. What tires are you running in those sizes?

I have that setup ,and I run 195/45-16 front and 215/40-16 rear. I have Goodyears, but they aren't available in those sizes anymore (in the US) and you can now only get Yokohama S-Drive in those sizes. Trying to find any brand with compatible front and rear tires in 16" is very hard.I'm getting new wheels for my Spyder.They are 16 x 7.What size tires should I use for front and back.Thanks
That is good info on the treadwear rating. I am running 225/50/16 rears with stock suspension on an 03, I cannot verify what other suspension set ups this will work for. I did the math, and on my car it raises the speed by 5% over the stock 215/45/16 rears that my car came with. I can't really comment on what this set up would do for a stock 1zz as my car is a turbo 1zz.There are some errors here/ not complete information. First tread wear is company specific a higher number continental can wear far worse than a bridgestone. Those numbers are only meaningful within a brand.
What specific regarding suspension are needed to run what you suggest?
Did you measure the tire height on your choices ? you know that will effect the speedo right?
Also if the OP is on a stock engine & power pushing a 225 in back will be very underwhelming.
