Wid(er) tires for 15 inch wheels

Hey FF,

I'm looking for wider than stock tires for 15 wheels as the title says. I would like 225's, if they fit in the wheel-well. I am currently on stock suspension, but am going to get a drop in the future, hopefully sooner than later. The tires would be for 15x7 OZ Ultraleggeras.

I found 225/45/15, but am slightly worried that the decreased sidewall height would look goofy, especially at stock ride height. I have only found summer tires in this size though.

At 225/50/15 (pretty close to stock diameter) there is only Kumho AST's and some summer Toyos.

How low of temperature will Summer tires work before it's bad to use them?

All help is appreciated. Thank you.
