Best tires for my Carrera 3.2

I'm looking for tires for my 85 Carrera.The tires were on it when I purchased the car three years ago.  They are at least 10 years old and have hardened.  I don't drive in the rain and I'm not planning on putting a lot of miles on it so I don't care about tread life.  However I do plan to take a trip up the central coast.  Other than that, it's just local pleasure driving and a trip to the socal mountains on occasion. Any suggestions?  I've been looking at michelin pilot sport.

Tire size options

Model: 911 Coupe, Year:1989, Mileage:12100, Type of use:Street use only
I currently have 16 inch fuch wheels with 205/50/16 front and 225/50/16 rear. What lager tires would be an option for this vehicle and should i go to a larger tire?

Optimum sizing and availability

Model: Carrera Coupe, Year:1987, Mileage:64000, Type of use:Street use only
Current wheels are 15" Fuchs and I had 225/50/15 and 245/15/50 tires which filled out the wheel wells perfectly. As you probably know no one is making a 15" street tire with those dimensions any longer so I want to move up to a 16" rim to try and fill out the wheel wells again. Is there any chance you could give me a recommendation on a replica Fuch rim manufacturer and tire sizes that will fit but not interfere with the body?

Rim sizes

Model: 911, Year:1990, Mileage:64,000, Type of use:Street use only
I have a 1990 964 C2 will 17 x 7 front and 17 x 9 rear fit on the car without spacers or modifications?

Looking for a more comfortable ride

Model: 911, Year:2008, Mileage:12,000, Type of use:Street use only
I have a 2008 Carrera. My wife doesn't like how the car emphasizes every bump on the road. Is there a tire that gives a smoother ride?

964 BBS halves

Model: 964 C2, Year:1992, Mileage:84000, Type of use:Track use only
just sold my 993 RSCS(too valuable to race anymore and I was getting slow -that's my excuse) and I kept 2 sets of BBS motorsports wheels. just bought a 92 C2 to race and trying to fit the wheels. all the centers are 0228040. one set is 9&10x18(7.5x1.5,8.5x1.5), other set is 8&10x18 (6.5x1.5,9x1). would like to run 8s&10s- lips are rolled,rears are slightly flared, will be running R6s with over 2 degrees camber. what inners and outers will work - preferably without spacers and replacing studs
