help on what tires I can get???

Hi,
I am sorry I don't know anything about tires. I am going to change my tires and I find out I don't have much choice on 205/60R16, so what other size can I choice??? By the way, I have lowered my car with neuspeed sport springs, so can I not get some low profile tires, coz wouldn't that be making a bigger gap between my tire and my car ?
Thank you for any advice!
Simon

I recommend 225/55/16's. And a good tire to get would be Yokohama ES100's

I have 215/55/16 With Michelin Pilot Sport A/S. I've never had better tires. The size is good, too. Not too wide for the wheel, but wide enough to make a difference in looks and handling. Just my opinion, but I think 225 is a little too wide for a 6-1/2" wheel

Thank you for all your opinions!
Yeah! I love those ES100
and those AVID H4 are pretty cheap
so will those 55 make a bigger gap than the factory 60's???
if so, wouldn't that be waste of money to lower my car???
