many people go up to a 180. don't know if it improves performance all that much, but i think it does create a slightly larger contact patch. i recommend the dunlop elite 3. i just replaced mine after about 3 years/30k miles. the tread never wears down.

Mettzler 888's. Good mileage and a bit sticky for good grip in the wet. Comes in the stock size or you can go to a 180. The Mettzler 880's are also sticky but do not get as good mileage.
