    16x8? if so I'd say 255/50r16, you might get bigger to fit but it might be at the risk of the sidewall popping off the bead if you hit a bad pot hole or uneven tread wear. I ran 255/50r16's on my '87 TA for years and had no problems, loved them.

    can't say I've ever seen anything bigger on 16x8, maybe others have.

    I just put some Firestone Firehawk SZ50 P255/50R16's on my rear stock rims. They look great. They definitely don't look too big and the sidewall isn't bulging out far. I wouldn't go wider on a stock rim.
