Default Tire help!

Alright so i picked up a pair of 16x7 enkies from my honda buddy. I put them on my car and they looked great, im just in dire need of some tires and i have the cash for them. Im looking at the best bang for the buck, and i also need a little help from you experienced guys that know what kind of rubber i should fit under the tiny miata wheel wells.

Im thinking something like a 215/45/16?

I have no idea what sidewall size i will need, help me out guys- please!

Toyo T1R
or
Goodyear GSD3


Azenis if you dont get a lot of rain. Once they wear down they can get scary in the wet handling, or lack of, department.

If the Hankook RS2 are avalible in the size you want I'd give those a try.
