hi,
you may be able to fit some 195/55/R16's but you may also wish to check the wheels are not buckled due to the knocking on the speed bumps, if they are buckled they can cause your alignment to be off continuously

if your upping the wall hight, id personally downsize the rim. so go for a 15"?? i know when you go lower profile you go bigger rim, so i would of thought vise versa.... i tried this on a scoob i used to have, and it didnt work, the tyres were scraping on every chance they could escpecially with load on the rear and turning circle on the front........ they were obv the worst times
