Anything with a 5x120 pattern should fit. Just use a smaller tire. Like a 40R18 or something. I hope this helps-

Cheers 4 that!

I was worried getting them but had nothing but good responses since putting them on.
You know wheels either make or brake the look so I was looking for wheels 4 that long people at work thought I was crazy....

I like the big lip on them.

You should have seen the wheel mine came with.
Hated them, I said to the guy when I bought it, there gone, that will be 1 of the 1st things that goes LOL. I had to drive around with them for 2 weeks...felt like for ever. Once it was lowered it did look ok, but still sucked.

Sold them on ebay, had some good rubber still on them and I got AU $265.
I was more than happy! Thats gunna pay for my new hood lining
