Default What tire size?

I know nothing about tires, I just bought tokico illumina struts, skunk2 coilovers and rota gt3's and was wondering what tire size to get? I don't want to rub at all and still want a medium quality ride. I was thinking azenis but im poor...

P.S. UPS screwed up the tracking numbers so i got plates (in earth colors).

How wide are the rims? How much money are you looking to spend? If you use search and type in "Tires" you will probably get a ton of topics about this.

What was your stock tire size?
I had 205/40/16's and they were fine I liked them.
Either 205/40 or 205/45 will be fine. Do you plan to have any power behind those wheels? If so you could probably even go with a 215/40/16 and it would be the same height as the 205/45 but a little wider.
I run 205/40/17's and 225/50/15's on my civic, I like them both....(traded a buddy my 16's for his 17's)

Oh is a full set of plates? Or did you just get part of a set?
Earth colors are nice, but I prefer white (it goes with anything)

15x6.5'' 42mm offset.
BFG 225/50/15 drag radial.
2.25'' drop
It does rub at full lock while turning around. Driving around it never rubs.
