Idk about where to get tires or what brand to get for you, but I wouldnt go getting low profile tires on stock wheels or a wheel that doesnt already have low profile tires or a wheel that shouldnt have low profile tires. Basically for eg, if you had the stock alloy 16s you shouldnt go too low profile because your speedo will be off, the wheels are made for a certain wall height. But if you had aftermarket 18s low profile are necessary to keep the speedo correct.

You can PM me if you have more information or want more... but he pretty much said it.. you cant get low profile tires on your stock wheels... its stupid as hell... sorry. if you want low profiles then you need bigger wheels... 18s and even 17s are where you get into the "low profile" type of tires... most any type of tires come in many sizes to fill your needs haha. if you want low pros i would go with some 17s first of all.. a 215/45/17.. thats to prevent bends the easiest unless you watch the road... if you want 18s id get a 215/40/18.. but dont go any higher than that.... any questions?
