Hold on, no sense in going to a 16" wheel, the metal part on the inside, only to get a shorter tire. He'* just lacking clearance. A 15" wheel going up to a 16" one simply increases the metal part in the middle, but the tire size is the important thing. What'* the tire size on the car right now? Find on the tire something that reads XXX / XX / 15 and let us know.
Maybe there are larger tires out there so that you don't have to get new wheels, but it may just be a bunch of truck tires. A 16" wheel will have many more large tire options before going to an offroad set. But going to a larger tire, you will have the speedometer read a much higher speed than you're actually traveling.
94 STEi and 99 SLO
