You cannot upsize the tyres on your vehicle from current 205/55 R16 to 205/60R R16 tyres. The difference between the rolling radius of the two is more than 3 per cent (3.24 per cent to be precise), which is not recommended. The tyre will end up eating the wheel wells, meaning compromised safety.

Keeping your requirements in mind, Goodyear Assurance Triplemaxwould be a good tyre to begin with. It comes with a silica based compound and offers good traction and comfort with long tread life.
In case you want something better, then go for Bridgestone Turanza T001. It is priced on the higher side but is an extremely good tyre in terms of performance, comfort and tread life.
However, a tyre that fits between these two options is Bridgestone Ecopia EP150. It is actually a fuel efficient tyre that offers good traction over wet and dry surfaces along with good comfort and long tread life.
