Nice.

What size?

205/50/R16

They've served me well and within budget over the years. I get a new set every 40k or so with my "spirited" driving.

I'd like to go wider, but not with the 03' GTS wheels.

You can fit wider tires on those wheels.

Or do you just want different wheels?

Is there a performance advantage going any wider on these wheels? I already have the sidewalls wider then the lip on rims as it is. If I went wider, wouldn't I get more tire roll?

At some point I will get wider wheels. Unless I upgrade my brakes again, I don't see why I would go to 17's. It's either up to fate for a great deal to drop in my lap, or I actually get a real job. Which is exactly why I was in Salinas. An interview. Hoping to do some real work.
