Default tires for '89 944 Turbo

Hi all,
I'm going to need new street tires for my '89 944 turbo soon, but it looks like nobody makes the standard rear size (245/45-16) in street tires anymore.

My local tire guy says I can go with what appear to be the 944 S2 OE tires - 205/55-16 front and 225/50-16 rear. Is this correct, or will they be too narrow? Best I can tell, the S2 had 16x8" wheels on the back, while the turbo has 16x9".

Would I be better off getting new 17" wheels to access a broader range of tires?

Anyone else dealt with this problem?

Thanks!

I've just done a search on Google and loads of companies make tyres in 245/45-16 size. Check out the small selection below...

I think your local Tyre guy is trying to pull a fast one?
