I looked at them and came to the conclusion they didn't offer a tire in the same height as stock, and therefore would suffer in ride and potentially rub.

If you're looking for a better wet tire there are options. The R1R is good in the wet.

if i wanted to go wider, what would be your recommendation. i do not want to downgrade from the stock tires, because i do track the car at least 4 times/summer and i avoid rain:)
The S4 is not a track tire, it's a street tire, good for like an Audi Quattro. You want the Toyo R1R or R888, or perhaps the Falken AZENIS RT-615.

Your best bet is:

205/45R16 + 235/40R17 (about 1/2 inch shorter)
215/45R16 + 245/40R17 (marginally shorter)

Stock on the non sport cars is: 175/225, stock on the sport pack cars is 195/225, I'd recommend sticking with the same proportions as stock + sport.
