7/8" rims vs 8/9" for 16" tires

Wheels and Tires

Model: Carrera, Year:1988, Mileage:125,00, Type of use:Street use only
I have two sets 16" rims for my '88 Carrera.The Fuchs are 7" and 8". The other setof rims are 8" and 9". I want to put a newset of 205/55-16 and 225/50-16 tires onone set. Does it matter? What differencewould it make in driving/handling/etc?(Both sets fit and have been on the car inthe past--but I only realized now that theyare different widths.)
