    from the sizes you listed looks like you were looking at falken azenis tires? hehe
    205/45/16 is the best size, not sure about the others, when i had my 16's this was the size i ran.

    Match your new tire size up with your old tires so you have the same diameter- that way your overall gearing remains the same, and all your gauges still read correctly.

    wet traction + azenis = not happeneing dude. they blow ass in the rain.

    but the 215/45 is better. ideal is 205/45/16

    Falken FK451 or, if you need more tread life, Ziex are both excellent in both the wet and dry, and both last a fair bit of time. I'm currently running 235/40ZR18 FK451s on my car, and they've been on for about a year and a half, and still going strong despite my abuse of them. ;)
