Which Tyres To Buy?

HI All

I have a 2002 bugeye WRX, done 26000 miles and the tyres are now right on the limit. So as its now time to put my hand in my pocket and buy some new ones I was wondering if anyone has any recomendations?

I use the car as my daily driver so outright grip is less of an issue than road noise, tyre life etc. Can I go to 50 profile instead of 45 to quiet things down a little (road noise) or do I need to stay with the 45's

cheers

Neil
