Well, they fit, but you need about a 20mm spacer to make the offset correct and thats never really recommended! Spacers that large could bring in unwanted vibrations, etc - not to mention you need longer lugs. Stick with wheels made for a 5er

They fit as far as lug pattern and that is it. Since the offsets are different, they really dont fit, but thats what spacers are for. Its like MAKING it fit, but its not recommended.
