The std size is 205-60-15 BTW but a 215-60-15 will fit fine and is also rated for that chassis.
Tracking is better with a wider tire but wear starts to be worse on wider tires if rear camber is off or tire pressure isn't kept up, a wider tire has a tendency to start showing wear at the edges more so IMHO. Rolling friction is less with the thinner tire and you will feel a difference in the way the car corners with a narrower tire giving slightly quicker response, if you even notice it.
