Tire sizes to fit on 16's

Hey just bought some 16's for my e21 but I don't know what size tire I should be running. I don't know much about tire sizes so any input would help. I was thinking maybe a 215/45/16 or 205/45/16 but im worried about rubbing. Thanks

Not sure on E21 fender space though, search the net for other examples and learn from there. Have your rim width and offset handy.
