If you've got 16" wheels all around please post many photos! Especially S2's.

I want to know what a non-staggered setup looks like. I'm planning to do it but worried the rear wheel will look tiny and ruin the awesome proportions ?

16" all around can work assuming you have wider rear wheels/tires. Tire size should be based on weight distribution. You can find the cars with 50/50 weight distribution will run square tire set-ups. As far as visually, 16" on the rear do look smaller but not as noticeable as 15" at the front.

I have 205/45/16 front and 245/45/16 on the rear. I'm VERY happy with this setup, handling and looks wise, which is why I am selling my Cup wheels.

Here's a better picture.

Awesome mattjk, looks great! I love the extra meat. What offset are you using? I've got a set of TE37 16x8 +25 that I'd love to use all around. I hope that aggressive offset will tuck under stock fenders.

Anyone else running 16s? I really want to see the proportions, so a few angles would be great.

@mattjk what kind of camber do you run? Are the rears close to rubbing? Which tires?

Sorry for the 20 questions, theres a big difference between +35 and +25 (my wheels) for fitament. Also a big diff between tire brands :(

Gonna test fit the wheels soon and decide whether I want to take a chance and pull the trigger on rubber :)

I have stock camber, Tires are Toyo R888R. Zero rubbing. There is plenty of room.
