Default Advice on wheels

As some of you may have seen my other threads, this is what my car currently looks like.

15x6.5 motegi racing wheels with 185/65/15 tires. I hate the look and wondering about switching to these 16" chrome rims in the second picture.

The current tires I have on now are in great condition and I will be needing tires if I decide to go with the 16"s.

Few questions: will I be fine with 205/55/16 over 225/50/16, not sure what the difference is but the 225/50/16 are significantly more in price.

I live in michigan and we had a bad winter last year and the worst potholes I have ever seen. (Thankfully I had an 03 tahoe z71 4x4, no longer have)

Are the 16"s going to have any disadvantages over the 15's in snow or what not?

Will they rust at all? Easy to crack?

Any help would be appreciated to help me make a decision, should I make this change or stick to the 15"s. I think I may be able to sell the 15's so I will have a chance to put the 16"s with brand new tires without spending any extra money since I got a good deal on the 16"s

Im thinking abou purchasing the new tires from walmart.
