I think you would conclude that it is hard to find good summer rubber, in 16" size...

I hear you, in regard to having too low a profile; would result in bent rims, in some circumstances. I think 17" rims are a decent choice -- but I personally would like a fairly stretched tire.. that is to say, rims that you can curb-rash if you are not careful. Of course I do not like / want curb-rash... but I like a taut sidewall!
