What would be the narrowest tire you could put on the LSS rims - could you go any less than 195 & 225?
For the rear, you could certainly run a 215/45-17, and a 205/50-17 should also be within specs. Both of these are very close to stock diameter. Narrower tires than that would probably get too skinny for the 7.5" wheels.

For the fronts, I'm having problems finding many available tires for anything close to the two stock sizes, so I can't check the specs. In general, if you have something specific in mind, the rim width range is always listed in the specs, and you can use one of the online tire (like http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html) to verify that the diameter is close to stock.
