Should fit

Your rims will stick out a tad more from the hub becuase of the -7mm offset. The tires will have less bulging on the rim edge (stretched) because of the +.5 inch width. It'd work.

but is it safe to do so?? it isn't getting stretched a lot is it? thanks for the reply by the way.

i don't think the wheel i wanted to buy will fit lol. because i checked the size of my wheel and its a 16 inch wheel. the tire size is 205/55/16

so i guess i just have to buy the wheel and tires at the same time.

Wouldn't be stretching too much. If you wanna see stretch see some stanceworks e46's

Stick with a new tire. New tires are always nice.
