you need 205/45/16. 45's aren't to thin, but they fit nice on a lowered car with 16's

45's.. are nice. i have 40's and its too thin i bought my wheels and tires together for cheap so i cant complain... also depends wut tire it is.. for example azenis sidewalls are way thicker than other tires.. and u cant really slam a car on azenis w/o scraping. make sure u see in person the tire ur gunna buy.

P205/40/R16

to

P215/45/R16

Id do the 40 profile.
I'd also RECCOMEND 205mm width, as it will help turning and in rain (being smaller)

i would say 215/45/16 azenis
they're not too bad in the rain

parada spec 2's suck in the rain
my drag radials do better than they do in the rain
