Wheel Spec Help

Can anyone confirm if these specs are suitable for the R170?

Fronts - 7J x 16 H2 ET34
Rears - 8J x16 H2 ET30

Found this post which talks about offsets, but in relation to a set of 18" rims, I'm looking at 16" OEM's from an R171 (I'm not sure if the offset is identical for larger diameter wheels).

Tyres would be F 205/16/55 R 225/16/50.

Happy New Years!
