I'm buying new tires and I'm keeping the stock rims.... I'm gettin yokahoma ES100's.... It has them on there now.... I'm just buying 2 of them since the rest are ok.... right now it has 205/50/16zr on them... I wanna go a lil wider to like 215... the problem is they don't make 215/50/16ZR so should I try and go to a 215/45 or 215/55?? I do a lot of aggressive driving, straight line and hit up the back roads frequently.... I like the tires they seem pretty good.... so what do you all think??

45 can and most likely damage your rims if you go over potholes and bad roads. its has a great grip on the road but risky.

So you are going to stick with the 205s?
AVSES100 Size Chart
They do have a 225-50-16 with an approved rim width of 6 to 8 inches. 6.5 should be ok. Their 225-45-16 minimum width is 7 inches though.
