    bolt pattern: 5 x 4.5 or 5 x 114.3
    stock rim size: 16 inches diameter x 7 inch width offset +45mm
    stock tire size: 195-50/16

    Ive been running 17's with an offset of +42mm on my car car with perelli p6 @ 205-50-17 without rubbing, but it should be said the perelli diameter is not as much as many other tires (the 205 50's diameter almost matched a set of bridgestones I was considering that were 205-45)
    the tires/rims that came with my car was 17x7jj off a mazda millenium running 225 45 17 tires with no rubbing on the frame, but, they did end up rubbing against the strut mounts in the rear, this could have been avoided with simple 3mm spacers, I just didnt catch it in time to save the rear tires :/

    ive read people have run 18's on the mp5, with 35 low pro tires, but personally I dont like how it looks on our cars.

    The same as your stock wheels, posted above.

    at the moment, Im using my wifes 16" rims off her 06 Altima because my tires were in much better shape and I wanted to make sure she was safe while driving, especially with our son.
    the tires on these rims are 205/55 16, and I get a little rubbing against the fender. it should be said though, the tires are well worn (as in should have been replaced a 1,000 miles ago...) but since my car wasnt/isnt actually running atm, its no big deal.
    Ive done a little research and it would be possible to run 215/50 16 on stock rims, and 225/45 16, but I wouldnt recommend any wider than that as you will risk rubbing against struts/springs, unless you use a spacer.

    That's incorrect. Stock alloy wheels are 6" with +50 offset.

    Bolt pattern = 5 x 114.4mm
    Diameter = 16"
    Width = 6"
    Offset = +50
    Centre bore = 67.1 mm
    Thread Size = M12 x 1.5
    Tyre = 195/50 R16
