So I ordered a 205/50/15 and 245/45/16 Yokohama A052, and now I need 16x8 rear rims. What is the best/cheapest option?

Youre cheapest option would have been to avoid the need for a 16" rim. Maybe you'll get lucky and someone will sell used ce28 for $2500

Not a lot of options out there, but I would look at https://www.good-win-racing.com/Mazd...els-Tires.html scroll down and click on 16x8. Spacers may be required.

I have a set of black Rota Slipstreams that I ran several years ago - they're 15x7 and 16x8. PM or email me (in sig) if you're interested. Back to the thread!

ooo i just noticed they offer a 195/50/16 along with the 245/40. Guess I'll sit and watch for the additional tire rack specs to show up to see how wide 245 really is.

Where did you buy them?
At least in the states the additional sizes haven't shown up yet.

I found it on russian Yokohama website - https://www.yokohama.ru/shop/advan-a052
And it's really exist
I'm located in Ukraine, so for me it's not a big problem to buy them

Yokohama has all the sizes listed now on their website and Tire rack seems to have some of the new sizes listed:

Called TireRack today and they are getting sizes in stock as we speak.
The new US version is also 7/32" so they're likely legal in the 200tw autoX classes. So expect these to dissapear once the word catches on.

But After calling them, it looks like they have the 215/40/17 in stock and the 245/40/17 in stock. I think I'm going to try this combo but I'm a bit worried about them fitting given the talk about how wide they run.

Ordered 215/40/17 up front and 235/45/17 out back.
Its certainly a heavier combo than a dedicated track tire/wheel setup, but this setup is likely within 1 second of hoosiers on my small local track so having 1 set of tires and rims (even if the tires are more expensive) is cheaper overall.

Let us know how the fitment is. I'm looking at the 245/40 size for a 17x9 +27.
What size/offset are your rears?

I have XXR 527's which I believe are +25. Will be at least a couple weeks before I get my car back from the bodyshop, so we'll have to wait a bit to see how the fitment is.
