what is the best tire size for 530i

Looking for replacement tires for the 530i. Current tires are falken 225 p60 r15. curious is is should get same or go lower profile? Nothing super extreme or season specific, just a good all-season tire that handles well.

I'm looking more for guidance on the size. Do I go a lower profile, wider tire or stay with the stock size? Any suggestions on this?

definately consider the michelin ps2's. i have them on my 01 530i sport right now and they are AWESOME! super quiet, smooth, and handles SUPERB in wet and dry conditions. they are on the pricey side though... you can also consider falken 452s and the yokohama s drive. ive heard many great reviews on those.
