The 195/50R16 is the largest you can go on the 5.5 wheel. Squeezing the 205 or the 215 on a smaller rim isn't a good idea. If you have the 175 now, upgrading to the 195 will definatly improve performance. The 225/45R15 R888 is a reinforced tire and has a higher weight capacity than the 235/40 or the 245/40. The 225/45 is 25" tall, the 235/40 is 24.6" and the 245/4 is 24.7". Not a lot of difference but it could be enough.
