Question Want to upgrade the alloys of my Optra SRV

Hey Guys,
I posted this question before also but there was no reply so thought I'll open a new thread itself.

I'll keep it short but detailed here. I have been searching the market extensively for new alloys+tyres for my car. I have a chevrolet optra SRV. It came shod with 185/65-R14 OE Goodyear NCT5 tyres and rims with wheel caps. Surprisingly, there aren't many options for me to consider given the fact that the PCD is 114.3 (four holes). I have set my mind (and heart) on upgrading to 16 inches alloys and 205/55-R16 (if feasible) or 205/50-R16 tyres. The problem is that no dealer in Delhi has what I am looking for. I have been to Sai Mag Wheels, BK Tyres, Lenso (Karol Bagh) and a couple of unknown dealers too but to no avail.
So please help me out here and suggest some other dealers in Delhi or Gurgaon where I can get what I am looking for. The current tyres are bald to the core so I want to change them ASAP.

in india getting 16" rims in common pcds is difficult so youll have to be really lucky to get them in your size. i suggest you stick to 15" or then upsize to 17". not really much help for you, sorry.

for 15" i think 195/55 r15 will be fine.

Agree with Akshay ; get 15" and the right upsize;after all you are already low on aspect ratio @55 and it wouldn't be a good idea to go below that here.
