Contour SVT Wheels on Focus ZX3 URGENT!

Hello! I have found some 16" Contour SVT wheels and I wanted to know if they will fit on my 05 Focus ZX3 SE (that currently has 15" wheels). Also, the tires that come on the Contour wheels are BF Goodrich Traction T/A's with the front being 215/50/16's and the rears 225/50/16's. I want to use these tires too. Would there be ANY fitting issues here? Can I just bolt right on? Supposed to meet the guy today so a quick response is so VERY VERY appreciated! :)

I have made a photo"chop" version. I'm picking up the wheels tonight. They were powder coated, hopefully they look nice in person.

Here's the before:



And Photoshopped version with front lip, decals, wheels, and black bezel headlights.

Those are some meaty tires, fitment will be questionable if you have lowered your Focus at all.

^thats not a real pic, its a pic of the wheels superimposed over a pic of the car. so thats not going to be very accurate or to scale as a real pic of the wheels installed on the car
