What is the biggest tire that I can run on a 16"x7" by 50 offset wheel?
The wheels are off my 1996 Sti from Japan.
Thanks,Randy

Here is a partial answer, ...

It would help to have a specific model tire in mind, you can then refer to it's spec sheet and solve this yourself. (example tire is a Toyo Proxes T1-S)
see: http://www.toyo.com/tires/tire_specsheet.cfm?id=2

for that diameter, going up no more than 0.65", the answer is a 225/45 x 16.
this is an ~8.9" wide tire (note, limited to your 16" rim, measured rim 7.5", not adjusted for)

for that rim, the answer is a 245/55 x 16. however it is 26.6" in diam. and 9.8" in width. Probably won't fit.
(above specific to toyo only!)

If you are not sure how to measure the available space in your wheel wells,
the best answer is to see if anyone here can answer the following...

What is the widest tire (model) anyone has actually fitted without problems....
