Default Tires on Stock rims

First just want to say hello!
I am a newb here and in need of some friendly advice.
Sorry I am fealing lazy and didn't realy check any other threads!

What is a good size for summer tires? Should i get a larger tire? (i don't want to damage anything or throw the guages off)

What tire is the best for the money? (i am trying not to spend over 100/tire)
any personal experience would be great!!!

Thanks

and GO EAGELS!!!

225/50/16 will make your overall diameter about a half millimeter smaller than stock (negligable) and be considerably wider. It might be a pain to mount those on your stock 6.5" wide wheel though. You could just stay with the same size since about ANY tire is better than the stockers

Are you planning on using your stock WRX wheels? If so, I'd say try and stick with the stock 205 width.

Since you're looking, zip on over to tirerack.com and start there.
