newbie help with 16" decision on "13 MC

I am new and read 40 odd pages of posts. but could not find out these questions.
I have a chili 2013 Cooper hardtop standard with 15" stock wheels and 175-65/15 Michelin energy. I love this car by the way traded a Boxster and do not regret it.
I have an offer to change to a 16" wheel- black 8"wide and the tire guy wants to put Yokohama S Avid Touring tires in size 205/55/16 and change TPS sensors for me and reassemble old tire/wheels (5k miles)

my concern is if this is too much tire or width and will it adversely affect the speedo ABS and computer stuff and if you all have any opinions on this choice?
my entire reason is to have a nice black wheel as opposed to the silver stocks I love the way the car handles and rides now. use is in Southern California streets and freeways. All opinions and advice appreciated in advance... nice forum. jc
