    15 or 16 lightweight wheels with good tires.

    a smaller side wall will help with cornering stability as will a wider contact patch... that said you want to take into consideration the unsprung weight and rotational mass issues involved with tire/rim upgrades.... i would suggest a lightweight 15 inch rim with a 195/50 or 205/50 tire ... definatly dont go larger than a 16 though ( there arent as many good tires available in 16 inch sizes though )
    these articles will give you a pretty good understanding of what to look for

    I'd stick with a light Rota (13.5lbs) 16" rim with 205/40/16's. Check the rims out at machiii.net
