here are some examples of the 2 sizes..... http://www.nlmotoring.com/XXR-522-Wheels-16x8-Flat-Black-p/52268082.htm
and here is a picture of the 16x7's..... http://www.nlmotoring.com/XXR-522-Wheels-16x7-Flat-Black-p/52267082.htm

if you notice the 16x8 has way more concave to the spokes than the 16x7... but im thinking its because of the offset +0 as opposed to +25.... any thoughts?
Hey Skunk first off, why are you going smaller? I know you have 19 and 17 rims. Why aren't you using them. I think 17 is a great size allows for a wider tire cause I don't trust my 15 :(. I mean with 17 you get a wider tire for more stability and traction.
I would ask the guys on a certain other Versa forum. <--- I hope this doesn't get me hated by you guys. They have some good threads on tire builds.

im going to sell my 17's... i want the 522's but i dont want to have to do a 5 lug conversion to get them in anything larger than 16's... i might just save money and get the Rota's that look like these... but if i do get the 16's i plan to get coilovers later on down the line....

I like the look of the 16x7 less concavey (sp?) I've been wanting to go down to 16's also...
Whoa, I'm confused. When I got the money, I planned on going 17 inch rims for the greater tires size. In turn, it would give more stability and traction. Why do you guys want 16 inch rims? I would think the 17 would be better for performance. It would be more grip, traction, and balance. Is is that you get the 16 you plan on a lower drop????

ok so if i decide to go with 522's in 16" i will get flat black 16x8 +0 in the rear with 225/50/R16 in the rear and then i will get 16x7 +25 for the front with 205/50/R16
its funny how the 225/50/R16 tires are cheaper than 205/50/R16 i think its because 225 is a more commonly used size...
