    You can have some rub issues with that tire......they do look good though. I think the perfect tire is the 205-55-16. IMO

    Yep, like Guy said, 225/50R16 can rub depending on wheel offset and brand/model of tire. Guy started a thread a while back about the same topic and I posted pics of what I had to do to make my 225/50R16 tires fit without rubbing.

    I have 16x7 Panasport wheels on my 240Z. The best tire size I've found is 225/45/16. I've used Sumitomo and Nexen ZR radials on the car since I've had the wheels and been very happy with the performance, look, stance, and ride quality. Just be prepared to wait a few days for your tire shop to order the tires because they are an uncommon size.

    Yeah, I really like that size too chaztg, but the limited selection turned me away. If I could have gotten Falkens or Hankook RS-2 or RS-3 in that size, I'd have gone that way for sure.

    I'm running 205/60/16 on my 16 X 7 panasports with Yokohama's. No rubbing issues. Don't remember the offset. Also running stock springs with Tokico Adjustable struts.

    I'm a old school guy, so i choose the Panasport 15x7 with 205/55/15. I did this so i could rotate the tires from front to back. The z has been lowered 1.5". No issues
