Those wheels will fit if they’ve come from a caddy mate yeah.
If you want to go for something bigger (most do) get your head around wheel specs like offset, rim width etc. There’s loads of information out there on this forum. You could fit up to a set of 20” wheels with the right specs

Welcome to the forum @craig1971
It's difficult to explain about alloy wheels mate, if you get your post count up etc, and apply for full access you will see literally hundreds of options.
As Pete said as a rule of thumb, if it came off a Caddy, it will fit on a Caddy, generally if it came off a VW it will fit, I put a set of OEM 17's on my first caddy as long at they are 5x112 and the ET is correct in as much as your side door opens :D ? and the choice of tyre doesn't affect the rolling radius too much then pretty much the world's your Lobster

Whenever I am looking for wheels, I usually work it out for myself. If you can find the specs of the wheels currently fitted and the specs of the wheels you want to fit, then you can figure out whether it will fit using:

and wheels specs can usually be found with:

You should be able to play around with tyre sizes as well.
