for both or just one? I think you can get away with both of them being that size, I wouldn't have just one tire that big

That big a size difference is not good for the differential, if it's LSD then no way it will be acceptable.
I'd really try to find something closer in overall diameter. The bearings/etc in the differentials are designed to turn, but not constantly.

Hell, on Subarus all tires have to be within 1/4 of an inch in circumfrance or you run the risk of killing the drivetrain.

Lugnuts
Do not use aftermarket (or other maker?s OEM) lugnuts on factory Toyota wheels. Do not use factory Toyota lugnuts on aftermarket wheels. There are some exceptions, but not many. They have different seat types. It is not safe. Conical seat lugnuts are the most common for aftermarket wheels. 12x1.5 is the size lugnut needed for the MR2.
Lugnut seat types from tirerack.com:
oem toyota are shank style which aren't even pictured because they're so uncommon now.
