Advice on tires please

Hi all, I am looking to buy wintertires, preferably with rims.
My trep comes with standard 225/60R16 95v
I am looking on some used stratus rims, 215/55 R16 93v

Anybody who can say if those Stratus will fit perfectly on my trep? Im worried about the distance between the 5 holes ...issue...
thanks

Your speedo will be off, though. According to my calculations, 1.05:1 is the new ratio. So, If your speedo is reading 105mph, you're only doing 100. You'll rack up more mileage on your odometer than what is going on the car, by approximately 5%...

But, if the rims fit, ask around at tire shops, and see if they have any used tires in the 225/60R16 size. I have a local shop that said they'd sell me a set of four for $120 out the door.
