What size tires will fit on sport 16" aluminum rims? And what size rims and tires are the biggest that I can go with without them rubbing?

What do you mean by biggest? Width or height? Assuming you want width, you can run 255/50/16.

like widest and tallest rim and tire that will fit with no rub on turns or bumps and the best preformance tire that will fit on stock rims.

You have to choose between tallest and widest. If you get 255's then you have to go with a very low profile. If you want taller then you have to have to get a narrower tire.

I run 235/60/16's

I don't plan on lowering my XR7 anytime soon and to me that size seems the best trade-off for height & width. They are just a tad taller then the 225/60/16's so the speedo is still pretty dead on too. I think it's like 1mph off at 60 or something like that.

I just put a set of 245/50/16 on the back of my Bird. I am thinking of putting a set on the front but was wondering as well how wide i could go in the front. If i put another set of 245/50/16 on front will i have rubbing issues.
