i have 205s on my OHC, brilliant grip but will affect your economy a bit (around 1kmpl if you upgrading from 175s). go for 195/55/15.
not too low profile so ride will not be affected.
you'll have to check your well wheel depth if you consider 205 so see if there is no contact while turning.
I've always been a fan of the Dunlop SP9000s. Great tyre, highest speed rating (Z), one year unconditional warrantee and soft ride.
