a very warm welcome to an obviously very astute car owner!!!

The 96 RAV will take 16"; 17" or 18" wheels - for example the wheel and tyre combination I use for sprint/drag racing number 1 RAV is 225/40x18. This gives a smaller diameter wheel improving the accelaration but obviously affecting the speedo accuracy.

However, if you search this forum there is a link to a clever website which gives you the wheel/tyre options to maintain the diameter.

The next thing is to pick a 5 stud alloy with the right offset to clear the brake caliper - I have a set of 18" alloys which i got 2nd hand from a Lexus. I also have a full set of 16" alloys which i don't currently use with the original 215.70 16 tyre. Go to any local decent alloy wheel supplier and they will tell you which alloys will fit.
