that is the number of revolutions it takes for that tire to go one mile, it is used to calculate with a programmer to compensate for larger/smaller tires to keep your speedometer true

Just a technicality...
You asked for wheel sizes, but you're listing tire sizes...
Which is it you really need?

I'm assuming it is in fact tires, so you can add:
225/40/17 (Only 1 tire in this size. "Nitto" NT-555)
225/45/17 (Requires standard SVT wheel offset (49mm) and mild (standard models) or no drop (SVT models))
^^^OK, so that's a lot of "requirements", but I did run 2 sets in that size (stock suspension/wheels) with no problems.

Do you guys think a 215/50/r16 would be happy on an OE 16" alloy?

Probably not, there's only about 1/4" or so with my 205/55 between the tire and the front strut, and a wider tire (215/50 in this case) would be even closer to it.

I believe those are 6" wide wheels so I'd say more than likely, but possibly no only because of the tall sidewall. You would need to check the tire mfg's website to see if it is approved to mount on a 6" wide wheel. I know someone who ran a 225 and rubbed on the strut a little. It would be a tight squeeze.
