Default Which Bolt Pattern do I need? 5/100 or 5/110

I own a 2007 Mazda 3 Grand Touring Sport edition 5 door, and I would like to get these wheels:


But I don't know which bolt pattern I need. My options are either:
A. 5/100 & 5/114.3
B. 5/110 & 5/114.3

My current tire info:
Wheels 6.5J x 17" (standard)
Wheel Offset (mm) 52.5
Tires P205/50 R17 V-rated all-season (std)

So I have 3 questions:
1. Which bolt pattern do I get?
2. Will it rub against the car?
3. Is it easy enough to install myself? (I've rotated tires and even painted my own brake calipers but never installed rims)

I've tried searching and searching but to no avail. Please help.

1. Which bolt pattern do I get?
5x114.3

2. Will it rub against the car?
Depends on the offset of the wheels
you might want to list the info of the wheels

3. Is it easy enough to install myself? (I've rotated tires and even painted my own brake calipers but never installed rims)
installing rims will not be able to be done by hand, you will have to get them mounted and balanced by a shop. rotating tires and painting calipers is on a different level than mounting rims to tires - i mean you're talking about you will want to have professionals do this for you.

Thanks for the reply EthereaL. I'm a n00b here when it comes to bolt pattern. I will have the rims and tires sent to a shop to put them on my car.

But I don't understand if I want option A or B.

Both options have a 42mm offset:

A. 5/100 & 5/114.3
B. 5/110 & 5/114.3

Does each option mean the rim can fit 2 distinct bolt patterns? e.g. option A can fit 5/100 and 5/114.3

the 42 offset will probably rub

Not necessarily, depends on the width on the rim. Yes if it's 5x100/5x114.3 it fits both.
