Well I have come across some Scion tC 16x6.5 5x114.3 +45 offset steel rims

Would these work?

I run 225/50 tires on 16x7 wheels with +40 offset. My car is slammed in coil overs and the wheels are tucked in the fender still. However I did have to remove the front inner fender liners and roll the fender lip. It's a tight fit when lowered.
True, ... true.

I would go with the first choice for a better fit. But both will fit decent. Its the center bore you may have to measure to be sure they will fit

What brakes are you running?
If you have the stock base model solid front rotors and drums in the rear, I don't recommend adding upsrung weight to the front and rear of the car, as 100% this will.
Acceleration will be slower, as will deceleration, with only cornering being a bit better assuming you haven't moved the wheels too far in or out.
If you have turbo brakes, disregard as it is less of a concern.

the bore size says 72.6

also does a 38 offset better than 45? based on the post above 40+ above is a much better choice

Depends on your wheel width and tire size, we cant tell you to go with +38 or +45 based on nothing. I personally like a slightly lower offset and run +34 on 15x7 225/50s but they are more like 235s as the tire I use runs on the big side, I had to roll the front fenders.

im just worried if the +38 wheel be out sticking out of the fender or hit something inside the suspension on full turns compared to +45. what's the limit on tire size can the +38 offset handle im planning on 195/50 can it handle 205/50 or 205/55? what about the +45 tire size choices?

A 205/50 would be a good fit for +38.
