Tire recommendations for stock 16" wheels for autocross

Hello all, I've searched under every term I could think of (ie stock, 16", 16x6, etc) to try and find a decent tire to run on my car for autocross this year. i have an '03 SVT and I also have an extra set of stock 16" ZX3 wheels that I want to use for racing. The stock size for that wheel is 205-50-16 and I can't find any tire in that size that is good for autocrossing. I've done a decent amount of searching on the tire rack, discout tire, etc. I planned to run the Azenis RT-615 but they only have a 205-40-16. I want to run our new street tire index class (STI) this year.

My car is 100% stock BTW. I don't care if switching to a smaller size wheel knocks me out of the stock class as I don't have the funds to buy a dedicated set of 17" wheels plus tires right now.
