the 215-60-15 will be a wee bit taller, but not much. your best bet would be to see what the tire shop says. 225-50-16 is also an oe tire size as well, and 16" wheels are fairly cheap.

as for the tires themselves, there are multiple options. i say get the one that best fits your driving needs. you don't 'need' to go with say a speed rated tire if you don't go close to 100mph, for instance, and super sticky tires that may last 25k miles may be little overkill.

either way, i always like to get roadhazard insurance on them.
