Sorry to read about your loss, hope you are OK.
Thanks for the keychain info, I'll shorten mine.

FWIW, I see better economy on my 175/65R15 steel rimmed winter tires with non-aero hub caps than my OEM 185/55R16 alloy rimmed summer tires.
I feel you should not go wider especially if you also raise the pressure.

Go for the best quality tires you can get. I lost a car due to crappy tires which wasn't too bad as the car was crappy too ('86 4-gear single cam deasel Rabbit, acceleration timed per calendar).
The only reason to get wider than OEM would be if that allows for better tires.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.16 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Most people are in the longest queue.
