You should be fine. The recommended tire sizes are going to be printed on the door jam right inside your drivers door. You should be fine running up to 225/55R16 as that's what they run here in the states. Although they won't be much bigger you will probably feel a difference as steering effort will be a little more difficult. It won't damage or wear anything out any quicker.

First of all 10x robert... I have a 7" front tyres and 7.5" rear tyres, that's the sport package, so i am going with 205/55 R16 Front and 225/50 R16 rear so it will be more balanced (I asked a pro)... Anw 10x man

A good tire store will tell you if a tire will fit. Why the wider tire? there has been a study and wide tires actually put less rubber on the road due to the centrifugal force on a wider surface having less rigidity to hold the tire flat. For looks? Go for it. Just make sure you note the speedometer change. If you don't the friendly police radar will give you a written notice.
