personally i'd drop down to a 15x8 rim...seems to be what most people prefer...i run them myself and i love them...especially when it comes time to buy new tires...15's are always cheaper!

but, you can put any rim you want on there as long as it is 15" or above in diameter and has a 5x4.5 bolt circle with at least (IIRC) 3.25 backspacing

but if you do choose a 16, and are planing to run your stock tire size, then get 16x7 (thats the same size as stock)

nope...the last 2 numbers of your tire size indicate required rim size

245
section width(outer sidewall to inner sidewall across the top of the tread)

70
sidewall aspect ratio(height from rim to tread)

16
tire and wheel diameter(must be matching numbers. ie. 16 indicates that you MUST have 16 tire and 16 inch wheel)
