Tire question

I am looking at getting some 16's on my lude. I want to go with Azeni tires. When I look at there 16" tires (RT-615's) they have 205/40/16, 215/45/16 and 225/50/16's. I have 205/50/15's on my stock si's right now with apprx a 1 1/2" drop with the Eibach sporlines and AGX's. It looks pretty good. There's only a little bit of a wheel cap (see old pic below). Since I am going to move up to 16's and I'm not a big big fan so much of low pro tires (b/c i like rubber) what size tire would you recommend? Can I fit the 215 or 225's on? Any issues when going with a little wider tire? I know for the track they should overall be better when wider.

Note** Don't ask me what was wrong with the front left wheel in this pic - haha. The radius rods were not in. And no I did not drive it with them out.

I would go with 215/45/16s or 225/50/16s.

would there be any issues like rubbing or anything when going with a wider tire? Or can you safely fit 215/225 series tires on the 4th gens?

i'd go 215/45/16. i have 215 right now, and sometimes like turning while going down a hill/ramp, i rub. plus with 215, my tires are flushed to the side of the car.
