Default yet another tire question

I have my stock 16's that came with MY00 legacy and would like to know what summer tire would work for me that maybe low profile. The car will be getting droped about 1" on prodrive springs and stock struts. I would like something also that is 100 buck or less if I could. I was reading the last post and will be looking up those. Do we know what type of tires are on my stock car?

stock size for the last 2 generations of GT is 205/55/16. The stock rim is 16"x6.5" and isn't really thrilled about taking 215/50.

I run a 225/50 R16 on 2.5RS wheels (MY00). They don't look particularly low profile but they are fat and they stick well.
Good tire for a good price.

So those tires are good for summer tora? I know I would like a wider tire, and if it is just a little bit lower I would be happy.
