Is it 205 50 16", I'm not sure? I'm pretty sure that it's not a 40 series or greater than 205. I always had 15's on my GTS, other than the other wheel. The 15" was I think a 195 55 15". So the 16" should be 205 50? Whatever you do, don't go bigger like that. Go with the stock readings. If you have aftermarket wider wheels, then by all means get a wider tire. You want shorter/wider (too a point), not taller. Get the 50.

What the hell happened to my reply? Too make it short. Don't go taller, get the 205 50 or wider if you have aftermarket wheels. Don't go above the 50 aspect ratio in a 16".

I checked it's a 195/55. The 16" is 50. If those places don't know, Toyota, or any where else. They don't need to be in business.

I'll make it simple for you. Go to your Toyota dealer and check the cars or ask. Or call Tire Rack, Discount Tire, or anybody and they will give you the specs or what's you can get away with. Takes a minute and for the first two toll free.
