I have a 2015 Renault Zoe with 195/55 R16 tyres.  I am looking to buy a set of
winter wheels.  If I buy a new set with 195/55 R16 winter tyres on them can I

The simple answer is that if the wheels and tyres you're going to buy are designed for a Renault Zoe then they will definitely fit. However, it's not just the tyre size that you need to take into account as different car manufacturers fit wheels of different widths, different offsets (how far the wheel sticks out into the wheel arch), and even with different wheel bolt patterns and hub sizes. Wheels for a Zoe should have a PCD (wheel bolt pattern) of 4x100, and offset of 40 and for the 16-inch wheel size they should be 6.5-inches wide. Many other Renault models have similar wheel sizes, and it's also worth noting that the Zoe can come from the factory with a 6x15-inch wheel with 185/65 R15 tyres and these will probably be cheaper to buy than a set of 16s. If you are buying from a tyre or wheel dealer they will provide a set suitable for a Zoe if you tell them that's the car you want to fit them to.
