Default 16x7 slipstreams

I am considering buying some flat black 16x7 rota slipstreams, but am a poor 16 year old. Can I run them with the stock 205/55/16 tires that are on the stock rims, since there is only a .5 inch difference in width, has anyone done this?

any help would be greatly appreciated

Yes. The 1998-2001 Impreza 2.5RS all came with 16x7 wheels with 205/55/16 tires from the factory.

Yes, but my point was that 205/55/16 tires fit fine on 16x7 wheels, as demonstrated by Subaru. These wheels also fit the newer Subarus, and some choose that route for the extra clearance (among other reasons).
