to stay closer to your stock tire diameter size, go with 195/55R15

if you are lowered alot, get 195 50 15, so it doesnt rub. if not lowered too much get 195 55 15

If you're going to track it once in awhile, go 195/50 for the gearing and handling.

The 55 series is good for comfort, keeping your speedo the same calibration, and slightly better fuel economy.

At the end of the day, there isn't much difference.

All season= no season...crappy summer tire and crappy winter tire.
Summer tires are made with a compound that is soft in warm weather, but they get hard with the cold temps.
Winter tires are soft in the cold weather, but wear quickly in the warm summer.
