New Tires for 15" Rims

So I need to buy new tires. Want to keep the car pretty much stock. The car is a '96 328i Convert with 15' rims. The previous owner put 195/60R-15 tires on it. OEM tires size was 205/60-15.

I drive this car a few times a week, not real hard. Sometimes trips to the beach a few hours away.

I have two questions:

1. Do I go with the oem size of 205/60 or maybe a size larger, say 215/60-15?

2. What tire? I am leaning towards the Michelin MXVR but very open to suggestions.
