Question Which size tires for 03-04 16 in wheels?

I have a 1997 V6. I am getting a set of 16in 5 spoke wheels off of a 2003 V6. I am wanting to put some larger tires on the rear. Thinking maybe 245/50/16 for the back and 225/50/16 on the front. But I was wondering if any one had any pics of it first. I kinda wanted to get an idea of what the rear tires will look like on a car like mine. So any pics or suggestions are Welcome... Thanks

I think 245 is too wide for those rims. You're best off with just going with stock.

I had different size tires on my first mustang (had 15 inch wheels and a wider tire in the back and it sucked, couldnt rotate them and I had horrible traction)

i take it you dont really know what the number on a tire mean, that middle number, 50, is the percentage of the width this represents the side walls height so its totaly different for a 225 vs a 245 tire figure out the correct height.

i would keep the same sizes front and back or you wont be able to rotate which causes alot of issues....
