Default Good 16" AutoX/Street tire size for Wagon

Yes, I know another tire post. I just went to an autocross race yesterday and now I need more grip I'm going to pump my tires up a bit more for next time, but if that doesn't work I'd like to get something else. I'm actually leaning towards getting the FM901, since the Azenis seem to be out of stock a bunch of places and I liked my SP5000's on my old Honda. My question is what size should I get if I want good handling for autocross? Stock is 205/55/16 right? I was thinking of going a bit wider to 215/45/16, its about the same overall diameter as the orginal tire. It won't be too wide for the wagon will it? I know there are other tire brands, but to keep from going insane reading more posts I am just going to say its either Dunlop or Falken for me.

I am very impressed with the Yokohama AVS Intermediate. They are an older tire design, but have much grip. Much better than the last set I had(Kumho's). The treadlife is only 160, and the tire rack doesn't have them in a 215/45-16, but they do have them in 205/55-16. They are only $58.00 each. Great tire for track days or autocross. I strongly recommend them for this...Rob"GQ"
