Default 1998 626 - 185/70 or 195/70?

Just bought a used 98 626....and I'm wondering about tire/rim options....Currently have the 185/70/r14's But would like something "meatier." Any advice on rim/tire size combos that look/drive best? Are there limits as to which rims I can use on this model? I don't really want anything larger than a 16" rim..

Im guessing its a GF chassis?

If so, just about any wheel off a Mazda 3, 6, CX7, CX5, CX9, RX8 will fit.

Not changing Rim size...just looking at best tire options for the stock rim....

Currently thinking 195/70-R14....hopefully no clearance issues in wheel wells...

As far as I can tell, this car does not have ABS....
