    Default I'd rather you come / came tomorrow.

    I'd rather you come / came tomorrow.

    Could either verb be used?

    Thanks.

    Yes. The present subjunctive (come) would probably be preferred by many AmE speakers, whilst most BrE speakers would tend to prefer the past subjunctive (came).
