i talked with Mercedes Benz Portugal, and the right size and the only size for 16" legalized is 225/45/16

What do you think? To much tire for this car?

I've looked up some 16" tire sizes for the w201 in Germany:

here are some RH rims:
205/45 R16
205/50 R16
215/40 R16
215/45 R16
205/45 R16

225/45 may be too wide. Why is 205/50 not legal? That's the correct size.
