I use Falken's pretty good tires. thumbsup Tires are specified in the form 205/50/16.
If it helps you choose...
First number is the width of the tire (section)
Second number is the aspect ratio (profile)
Third number is the wheel diameter (rim size)

Want a smaller or larger profile?

Falkens are really nice tires I have the 512 right now they are a great tire in all conditions. If you want something for the best dry performance get the azenises <spelling. I would stay with the recommended size or else your speedometer will be off.

get 55's for your 16 inch rims. it makes for a bigger sidewall and that'll fill up more of the 'gap' in the wheel well than a 50 series sidewall will do. that said, you're still going to have a sizeable gap in the wheel well without a drop or bigger wheels. (55 is the stock sidewall, just fyi)

also, either falken or nitto make great tires. falken is generally a bit more expensive though
