RE: 16" Wheels

	you could just use 45mm offset wheels in the front and Back.  so
you can still rotate.  You can fit 225's in front with no problem with a
45mm offset.  And then you can at least run 215's in the back.  Not sure
about 225's though.  A friend of mine is running 52mm offset with 7mm
spacers in front to run 225/45-17's on a non flared 5ktq.  Works very well
for him.  But the wheels had to be custom made so they are pricey.  But
the fronts fit great witht he spacers which equals out to a 45mm offset on
the 7.5" wheels.

<< I've got 16x7 ET37 wheels with SP9000 205/55R16 on my '87, and it's
 extremely close in the rear, and will occasionally rub the outer
 fender lip if I take sharp turns with people in the rear seat or heavy
 stuff in the trunk. I'll try to get the fenders flared a tiny little
 bit, it's irritating to not be able to drive with people in the rear
 without rubbing every time I turn..  >>

or you could run 45mm wheels in the rear, and 37mm wheels in the front,
i did.   both the 5 spoke 16" A series variety.
