You can't put low profile tires on your 16" rims. You can but it will look silly and probably handle badly. This is what your car will look like :
well, sort of....:smile2:

The results of a search on TireRack will only give you manufacturer or OEM sizes, not other sizes that may fit but don't come as an option from Mazda. There are many other sizes that will work, but you will need to match the tire size to the proper rim size. You will also need rims with proper offset for correct fit. There is a pretty extensive section on tires and wheels on this forum. I would suggest looking through it and try to get somewhat familiar with the various options. TireRack also has a rather complete help section with explanations of tire specs, how to match tire and rim sizes, how to choose a tire etc.
