If the tyre sizes you quote are correct, the 250/50-16 will be way too big. -About an inch too big all around! The 205/45-16 tyres were one of the alternate sizes for the RIO, but considering the characteristics of the car, a more conservative size would be better.

If you meant 205/50/16, not so bad. i found a pic of a guy who's running them:

Streetkiaz.com - My 2011 Kia Rio hatchback [Forum - 3rd Gen Rio 2006-2012 ]

the middle number is the aspect ratio between the sidewall height and the tread width.
