I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I am in need of rear tires, and my fronts aren't too far behind so I'm looking at tires. My car is a 2005 Elise with the sport pack, but I have standard touring wheels on it right now so my fronts are the little 175/55-16's. We all know it is difficult to find matching tires that come in both 225/45-17's and 175/55-16's OR 195/50-16's. Is there a magic tire size combo that produces more results? I know you don't HAVE to have matching tires but it is desirable. In fact my car has never had matching tires other than the racing slicks. Nevertheless I'm trying here and I'm just not coming up with much. To break up the cost I'm buying rears soon, like today or tomorrow because I'm on the cords. Then I'll get fronts soonish, they're old and hard as a rock anyway so they will last forever :)

Thanks
