Not on stock rims..... you will need 16x7 to run 225

Also you will want to go 225/45/16 to stay as close to stock diameter 50 will be a bit high/tall

i just bought 16" Rota Slipstreams with Falken fk-452 in 225/45/16

You don't have very many options on stock 16 inch wheels. 215/50/16 might work, but it's a little tall. If you're buying wheels, 225s are easy. Plenty of people have fit a 225/50/15.
