Those are a 16"x8.5", which wont hold a bead with stock 225s. Also with the offset (-6mm) you'll be further out than my 16"x8"s (-13mm) which will cause rubbing on the pinch weld if you get a wide enough tire to be supported by the 8.5"

Well that's new...I wish I had those a couple days ago when I got in that fender bender (mine was bent...his 70s Crown Vic was caved in and cut up!)

Stock height you're going to have to stick to 7 inches wide and 5 inches of backspacing to make sure you don't rub
