This would be for a 205/55/16 right?
I think you could even go 225/50/16, has same revs per mile and diameter.

whats the advantages of going w/ a 225 instead of the stockie 205?
Wider contact patch...and curb protection. You may want to check on tirerack.com to see the reccomended rim width for a 225/50/16 tire. I don't know the wheels' width on the rsx...if you can find that out, I can see whether or not the 225 would fit.

NM, i think 225/50/16 will fit. It has a rim width range of 6"-8. It also has the same rolling daimeter, so you don't have to worry bout speedo error and all. Only thing...is there is an ever so slightly increase in sidewall-flex responsiveness. But it is marginal compared to the level of grip you will gain...not to mention increased curb protection.
