More Tire Width

I read a thread about tire sizes and upgrading rim size but my question has to do more with width. Generally speaking, the more rubber on the ground, the better performance, right? I was wondering what the best size for a ZX5 was. Stock are 195/60R15, but is it possible to put 205/50R15 size tires on it?

Also, if I were to put 16 inch rims on it, would 215/45R16 work or is that too wide? I'm not really planning on it, but it would be helpful to know.
