If any of these alloys have an option for 4-hole 114.3 PCD, they will fit. Since the alloys are 8-hole, I'm sure they are multi PCD. If one of those PCDs are 114.3, then no problems.

About tyres, it's better if oyu give us the options available in your local market. We can then help you instead of suggesting tyres blindly.

Car Bibles : The Wheel and Tyre Bible Page 3 of 4

Use the tyre size calculatore on the above page to find a good upsize.

@nims: the 205/55R16 are the standard size in the GTZ variant which I have.
It is the best considering the performance of the vehicle.
Do post details and pics here.
