Have the correct sizes now , including the apparently nearly-unobtanium-and-worth-more-than-my-house Michelins with approximately a thousand miles on them. Just like new. But wondered, just in case I should keep it, what 16 and 17's others were using; see a lot of photos here and elsewhere with aftermarket wheels. Dont like the look of the stock wheel and would like to be able to have better selection/choices in tyres.
Really appreciate the suggestions above - those Lenso wheels look nice, but naturally arent available over here. Apparently the AZEVs I see quite often are 'nla' also. BBS and Gotti are price prohibitive and BBS doesnt seem to make that style any longer , at least in the size I need.
Open to suggestion[s] and personal experiences. :)

I went for 16" at the front 17" at the rear (just like the Le Mans, size-wise) on some Azev wheels back in 2000.

I've been using Toyos for the last few years and they've been great. Always ran these sizes:

205/45/16 on front
255/40/17 on rear
