what size tyre on a 5.5" rim?

hi everyone,

of course i have a problem that i would like some advise on, so here i go.
i currently have 165 70 14 tyres on my mk2 5dr punto (tyres need replacing), the steel rims were badly kurbed so purchased some new 5.5" x 14 rims, my question is what size tyre can i put on these rims?
could i put 185 65 14's on them.
