Hankook also has 16's available. From what I can see the 225 sizes are offered in many options, while the 245 seems to be available in 50 profile which is a bit taller than ideal but not crazy.

The trick I see with the 17's and 18's is how to keep the diameter near stock, avoiding loss of acceleration and performance. Also, not sure whether there is an increase in rotating mass, etc. (since there is an extra inch or two of wheel mass) and whether this would also be a negative. I will have to check that out.
